Ambachts- en Baljuwhuis (Voorstraat)

A number of students also came along with the transfer of the Silver Factory from Utrecht in 1858. They were housed as boosters with families in the village. To keep the young people out of the inns in their spare time, director Van Kempen rented a room in the Baljuwhuis. There, coffee, tobacco and beer were available for the young people at a purchase price. Newspapers and useful literature were also provided, along with drawing lessons, and religious lessons on Sundays. As the youngsters got married, the room became less needed and closed.
