Nijsinghhuis entrance

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!

10 opmerkingen:

  1. What a lovely door. The top window is stunning.

  2. Interesting story and beautiful picture. The colors and shades balanced excellently.

  3. Mooie ingang met de versierde bovenkant met "kaars"lichtje.

  4. What a beautiful doorway! I hope you'll be able to get back one of the days it's open. I'd love to see inside.

  5. A pretty entrance. I would love to see the inside too!

  6. The entrance itself would draw people in Marleen, can't wait to see the inside when you find yourself back there on the right day :)


Don't be shy and leave a comment. I'd love to read what you think!
