Foudgum in Friesland: Church tower with old and new part

Foudgum in Friesland: Church tower with old and new part
The village Foudgum is famous because the Dutch 19th century writer and poet François Haverschmidt was a minister there from 1859 to 1862. The difference between his student days in Leiden and this rural village with more conservative attitudes could not be greater.
Foudgum has since decided to honour Haverschmidt by naming several streets after him and placing a monument in front of the church.
