Overview of Holland
Steeped in Dutch tradition and with an eye for the future, Holland is one of the fastest-growing communities in the Great Lakes State. Located on the southwestern border of Michigan, this quaint community has a small town atmosphere with a population of more than 33,000, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Lined with beautiful beaches and loads of outdoor recreation opportunities, it makes sense that Holland apartments for rent are so popular with Michigan residents.
Living in Holland, MI
Holland was founded by 60 Dutch Calvinists led by Reverend Albertus C. VanRaalte in 1847. Much like America's beginnings, the travelers were seeking religious freedom and economic opportunity in a young country. After building their own channel to connect the settlement to Lake Michigan, the city began to prosper and grow.
After the railroad came into the area, the small community became even more popular with Michigan residents, and the area began to foster a thriving lumber and manufacturing market. Because of the abundant amount of pine trees in the area, Holland became known across the Midwest for its sturdy and attractive furniture. During the 1920s, many tourists came to the area for the magnificent Dutch tulips and stunning views of Lake Macatawa.
Toward the end of the 20th century, the city prided itself in the historic downtown district's revitalization, bringing in even more tourists to the area. Because of its small town industrialism and charming landscape, Money Magazine name Holland one of the top five places in the United States to retire.

Since the area is known for its innovative furniture design, it comes as no surprise that Herman Miller is one of the largest employers. However, Johnson Controls, Perrigo, Gentex and Haworth also make up a large chunk of the employment in the community. Because of their Dutch background, many of the companies in Holland pride themselves on their innovative and forward-thinking prospects.
