"The HOFJE VAN NOBLET...." Hofjes Tip by eden_teuling

Hofjes, Haarlem: 31 reviews and 50 photos

by eden_teuling

Leonard Noblet was a rich inhabitant of AMSTERDAM.
He and his two sisters made their house and money available for a HOFJE by Last Will.

The first residents had to be members of the REFORMED CHURCH and at least be 50 years of age.

The HOFJE is separated from the street by a garden and a wrought-iron gate.

The HOFJE now houses 10 old Amsterdam spinsters and 10 from Haarlem.

This why one of his daughters lived in Amsterdam and the other one in Haarlem.

The SUPERVISORS' ROOM is located at the Hooimarkt.
The middle part of the building has a so-called KUIF with a clock in LODEWIJK XV style = rococo.

The coat-of-arms of the family is underneath the cove under the clock.

You can enter the walled garden through the door at the right hand side.

OPEN: 10AM till 6PM and free of charge...

Address: Nieuwe Gracht 2 HAARLEM
