The Arend Maartenshof is a courtyard in the town of Dordrecht, in the Dutch province of South Holland. The courtyard was built in 1625 and was named after its founder Arend Maartenszoon. He was known as a money-grubber and tried to improve his reputation by building 38 houses for poor women. By founding this almshouse, the namesake hoped to ease his conscience. For a long time, Arend Maartenszoon was more interested in collecting as much money as possible than in caring about his fellow man. A bad reputation among his fellow townsmen and the church was the result of his greedy attitude.
