This is the entrance door of the Nijsinghhuis, a 17th century house at the Hoofdweg in Eelde. Between 1896 and 1939 it was a town hall, years later followed by a school. a bank, an office. Then nothing. To prevent the building from going into decline after that, it was eventually sold to the Van Groeningen family for the symbolic price of 1 guilder, under the condition that it would be renovated completely.
The Nijsinghhuis is now part of Museum De Buitenplaats. I have never been inside as it is only opened to the public on specific days, however I very much hope to visit it one day. If it looks as good inside as it looks on the outside, it´s quite promising!
