This building with its appartments is the remainder of a monestary that was build in 1534. In 1572 the monestary was abandoned by them because of the so -called 'reformation' and the building was used by the city as Latin School which it remained until the School moved to another building in 1849. The building was then used to house an institution to stop begging where the beggars could receive 3 meals a day and work. This institution slowly transferred to being a nursing home and was given its name Huize Groeneweg. In 1984 the building was divided into appartments.
The front side isn't very striking, though i very much like the little old doorway. But do walk around the building. The back of it is much nicer and gives a better idea of it.
