  The former widows house had many functions
by Pavlik_NL

This house started out as a "Frater"-house. "Fraters" were a kind of munks and these were driven out of the Northern town Zwolle and found refugee here in Doesburg. The founded the house already in 1423, which makes it one of the oldest monuments in the town. Later it became the "Latin School" and again later (19th century) it was in use as a house for widows. They found companionship with one another and shelter together.
