1. De Hoop

Show sight on map

De Hoop is a round stone scaffolding mill from 1897 in Zoetermeer, South Holland. De Hoop was built to replace an earlier "wind and steam corn mill, also peeling mill" of Bastiaan Hoogenboezem on the same spot, which burned out in the early morning of January 16, 1897. Presumably this was an octagonal wooden mill. In 1936 the ongoing work from the mill was demolished and since then De Hoop was exclusively used as a grain silo. After a major restoration that lasted from 1983 to 1986, the mill was grindable again. Since then, grain has been ground weekly in the mill in a traditional way. On Fridays and Saturdays the mill shop is open and all kinds of baking supplies are sold. Most of these are produced in the mill.

The Nicolaaskerk is the third church at its current location at Dorpsstraat 24 in the old center of Zoetermeer. After the use of a clandestine church on the Voorweg, after the Batavian Republic, two plots of land could be purchased here and the first church for the parish was built. This became so bad in a short time that in 1857 a completely new church was needed. This church turned out to be too small after some time and on March 17, 1915, the first stone was laid for the current one. In 1916 the church was consecrated by the bishop Augustinus Callier of Haarlem. The current Nicolaaskerk is a national monument.

It was built in the period from the beginning of August to the beginning of December 1955 by contractor Bontebal from Zoetermeer. The church was consecrated on December 20, 1955.

Oude Kerk in Zoetermeer is a reformed church in the old heart of the village, built in the period 1785-1787 by the Italian architect Jan Giudici. The church is of the cruciform church type, although the church appears square from the outside. It is Zoetermeer's oldest building, with the tower from 1642, and the brick base from the 15th century. On this spot of the current old church there was probably already a church in 1296. The old church at Dorpsstraat 59 has been a national monument since its restoration in 1970 by Piet van de Sterre from Leiderdorp.
