" ZEELAND CITY MONUMENT"

Located down town Zeeland, on the corner of Central Avenue and Church Street.
Section 19 of Zeeland Township, Ottawa County, Michigan.
The Church, School and Graveyard were at this site which is now the site of the monument.
In 1887, 40 years after the first arrivals in Zeeland, the bodies in the graveyard were removed
and the monument erected.
