Zeeland Township is a beautiful Township which shows pride in its historic background and its strong religious heritage. The Township, named after the Province of Zeeland in the Netherlands, was settled in 1847 by a group of 457 courageous settlers who were seeking religious and political freedom. Despite many hardships, the colony survived due to the strong faith and dedicated efforts of those who settled in this wilderness.

As of the 2010 census, the population of Zeeland Township is approximately 9971. The strong work ethic is still evident in the quality work force in the area, and pride is apparent in the upkeep of homes and businesses. Zeeland Township's location provides wide recreational opportunities with easy access to nearby lakes, streams, cross country skiing, biking and hiking. In addition to local cultural events, Zeeland Township is close to larger cities which provide excellent sports, intellectual and arts opportunities.
