The house is the former home of the lord Arends. He was born on the Voordonk in 1919 and moved with his parents in 1928 to on the other side of the back path, this home on Lede 40. Even after the death of his parents, he stayed here. In all the years up to his own death in 2008, Mr. Arends had nothing changed about the house. Therefore, almost everything is still in the original state of how it was once delivered. For example, there is no geyser or water heater and therefore no hot water from the tap. If hot water is needed it will have to be boiled. Also, there is no bathroom. There is a sink with cold water on the landing, but real bathing must be done in the tub.

Garden-examples Vreewijk

The design of the garden at the Museum House is based on drawings given to the first residents of the garden village as examples for their piece of land. Many of the plants listed with the designs can now be found in our garden as well (depending on the season).
