The Protestant church of Drogeham or Saint Nicholas church[1] is a church in Drogeham, Netherlands. The current church was built in 1876 on the site of an older church build in the 13th century.[1] The church is built against the 13th century tower of the old church and on top of the tower it is a gable roof.[1] The old church was a Roman Catholic church dedicated to Saint Nicholas but became a Protestant church after the Protestant Reformation.
