Waterway: Holland River

Located near the site of a sawmill built by John Evesin in 1808 and on the east bank of the Holland River, it was the perfect spot for settlement and industry.  The village of Holland Landing is located adjacent to the market gardening area know as the Holland Flats.  Originally this area was settled by many Dutch immigrants who were familiar with land management.  They were willing and able to turn a marsh into a productive and vital piece of land.  The Dutch settlers drained the land with dykes and ditches in the home country and so used the same expertise here.  
 
A major catastrophe struck the Holland Flats in October 1954 when Hurricane Hazel swept Southern Ontario.  The Holland Flats literally disappeared under 9 meters (30 feet) of water.  The village of Ansnorveldt was submerged, homes were swept away or overturned and the losses totalling millions.  The situation was overwhelming, the damage irreparable.  Nevertheless, with the aid of county, provincial and federal funds, work began to restore the land and within one year Holland Flats was once again fully productive.
