Description

History

"The erf was granted in 1709 to Sebastian Schreuder, messenger of the court. Parts of the front of the house probably date from that time (it is visible on Stade drawing of 1710) but it burnt down in the 1710 fire and was rebuilt. The front part (without the tail of the T) is on the 1817 town plan. Over the centuries it was altered, including being Victorianised. In 1974 it was bought by the museum and restored."
