Schutterij Bocholtz - Location abt. 1900 - 1947?

Surnames: Heuten / Steckenbuhl
We emmigrated to Australia when I was a child. My Dutch ancestors were born, lived and died in Bocholtz - Limburg since the 1830’s, perhaps even before that time. I believe my Great Grandfather-Peter Heuten born 11 Jan.1873 in Bocholtz, was one of a group of family members in a photograph taken at the ‘ Schutterij ‘ in a picture book about Bocholtz. Could anyone please enlighten me about the location of the Schutterij and the activities there? Great Grandfather was married to Gertrud Steckenbuhl born 11 Aug.1870 in Bardenberg Germany. On the back of an old photo in my possession is written ‘ Bocholzerheide 17 ‘. I am assuming that the family may have lived there . Would any members be researching the Heuten name or be familiar with the history of Bocholtz ? Thank you - Trudi in Australia
