Nederland - Vlieland, Het Armhuis

Nederland - Vlieland, Het Armhuis
The history of Het Armhuis dates back to 1632. In that year it was decided that a kind of home for former sailors should be created. Thanks to a generous donation from the clergyman Abraham Ursinius, the deaconry was able to take on this task. For centuries the house provided shelter to old (seafaring) people, the needy and later also to orphans. Until 1950 it functioned as an Armhuis.

After a thorough restoration in 1997, the building was used as a restaurant and gallery (in the meantime the restaurant will be closed on 1 June 2021). Het Armhuis is also an official wedding location on Vlieland.

I'm an old seafaring person myself Jaap..............so I love the idea that someone had thought to provide housing for those in need.

It's a beautiful old building and it looks particularly nice in the sunlight. It seems to have been restored very well (as can be seen from the two PiPs) and is still performing a useful function.

A super set of images............and a nice piece of history!

You must have enough historical photos and research by now to write and illustrate a book..!!
