  wevershof

A Godshuis was built by rich people for the poor. That way they were freed from their sins (at least that is what the church told them).
The houses are very small as they are ment to be for the poor people who do not need much........ They are always placed in groups.
This is Godhuis Wevershof. It is just outside the busy area, not too far from St Jans hospital.
This godshuis was bought by the city in 1924.
