’t Walvisvaarders Huisje

’t Walvisvaarders Huisje

Real whalers lived in 't Walvisvaarders Huisje in Den Hoorn from the 18th century. View the rich interior from centuries ago with the Zaansblauw front room and the kitchen with the special fireplace. We go back to the early 18th century. Klaas Jacobsz Daalder, who has sailed on long sea voyages since he was 10 years old, bought this house in 1729 and lived here with his wife and children. Klaas had then risen from a young sailor to commander in the whaling industry. Thanks to the good catches on whaling, he has left his mark, in addition to later owners of this house, in the form of a beautiful interior. For sixty years this house would be inhabited by whalers. After that, many other people lived there and this special national monument is still inhabited, the last 50 years as a weekend and holiday home. Would you like to come and take a look at 't Walvisvaarders Huisje? Then come to a viewing on a Monday afternoon.
