The past 125 years have seen the Amsterdam/Churchill community grow into a tight-knit community, based on farming, which serves as a quiet reminder of rural Montana in an area seeing tremendous growth and change. The Settlement was formed in the latter part of the 19th century, as the newly-formed Manhattan Malting Company turned to Europe, and specifically the Netherlands, for farming families to supply the barley and operate the irrigation canals. As more Dutch families resettled to the community, the Dutch Reformed Church took on a central role in organizing community life that has continued to this day.
