We’re Under Construction

Welcome, visitors!

We are proud to present Digital Holland, a website developed and created by undergraduate researchers at Hope College in Holland, Michigan. These students are part of the Mellon Scholars Program, an initiative in the Digital Liberal Arts funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

The website you are viewing now is the second iteration of the project. We are currently transitioning all content onto WordPress, which offers us flexibility in design, continuity in presentation of content, cleanliness in information storage, and ease of use for visitors. Our goal is to provide users with information about the history of Holland, Michigan in a clear manner. We are dedicated to highlighting the diversity of the community and sharing the stories of individuals not traditionally included in the historical narrative of the city.

Furthermore, the Digital Holland Committee is developing guides to ensure that future leaders and researchers for the project have all the steps they need to maintain the high standards we have set the website. We are developing a style guide so that all interested parties may contribute to the website, making Digital Holland a true community effort. If you are interested in contributing to Digital Holland, please click contribute. We look forward to hearing from you.

We invite you to explore the content we have transferred so far, and encourage you to visit the website again in the coming months once the transition is complete.

Enjoy & Explore,

The Digital Holland Committee
