Volendam Windmill in Holland TownshipHolland Township is located in the northwestern part of the County. The Delaware River forms its boundary with Pennsylvania and the Musconetcong River its boundary with Warren County. It was created from Alexandria Township in 1874. In 1876 it was remerged with Alexandria Township and separated as a municipality of its own again in 1879.

The Volendam Windmill Museum on Adamic Hill Road is well worth the trip in to this rural area of the County. The windmill is a living museum which demonstrates an authentic model of a mill driven by wind, used for grinding raw grain into flour. The sixty foot structure is seven stories high with sail arms sixty-eight feet from tip to tip.

The Musconetcong Gorge Nature Preserve is a rugged undeveloped park under the direction of the Hunterdon County Parks and Recreational System. The Preserve is comprised of 379 acres of steeply wooded terrain overlooking the Musconetcong River. This beautiful gorge includes many spring fed streams, a variety of plant species and wildlife. While the body of the area is a challenge to the seasoned hiker, a diverse trail system is being developed to provide accessibility for the less seasoned hiker.

Holland Township Natural Resources Inventory Presentation

A new Natural Resource Inventory for Holland Township will be presented to the Planning Board at the regular meeting of October 9th, 7:30 p.m.

Initiated in 2005 by the Holland Environmental Commission and funded jointly by the Township and the Association of New Jersey Environmental Commissions, the Inventory was authored by Deborah Kratzer of Kratzer Environmental Services in Kingwood Township. After review and acceptance the Inventory is destined to become an important element in the Holland Master Plan.

The Inventory replaces Holland Township's previous environmental survey, adopted in 1978. Drawing from a broad variety of sources, Ms Kratzer has assembled available information on climate, physiography and geology, soils, ground and surface waters, wildlife, natural vegetation, open space and historical resources. Solidly based on facts and data, the Inventory includes photographs and text which celebrate the beauty and diversity of this notably rural Township. Many of the displays of environmental features are depicted as overlays on a road-and-parcel map, allowing an unusually precise appreciation of where the features are located.

The draft report, 208 pages in length, is in digital format and uses geographic information system (GIS) map-layer technology throughout. GIS data come primarily from State and County sources, affording the municipality a concrete view of information now in use by the New Jersey agencies and regional planners who draw upon the same data pool. The Inventory also provides an opportunity for the Township to identify and correct errors in that information. Perhaps most important, the Inventory will provide a significant basis for future land use planning in Holland Township.

Although there are only a limited number of printed copies of the draft Inventory, the full document can also be found on the Hunterdon County and Riegel Ridge websites (http://www.co.hunterdon.nj.us/, http://www.hollandtownship.org/). To obtain a copy of the draft Inventory on a digital compact disk (CD), or for more information concerning the presentation, call the Holland Township Planning Board office at 908 995 0057.
