So America is younger than America! Fascinating!! ;D


Actually..Ulpia Noviomagus (Nijmegen) en Forum Hadriani (Voorburg) were the first Roman villages. The earliest recorded place in Limburg is Coriovallum (Heerlen) and not America (which is also in the province of Limburg).

According to wikipedia:
America was founded in the late 19th century on the Venlo–Eindhoven railway to serve peat extraction in the area by providing transportation for workers and resources. The town's etymology is uncertain, but it is likely the town was named after the Americas (continent). Other villages with similar foreign names in the Peel region, including California and Siberia, were founded in the same era.


Must be one of the early settlements :D
