In the thirteenth century, knight Amelis was a beneficiary of the Amelisweerd estate, which was later divided into two parts: Oud-Amelisweerd and Nieuw-Amelisweerd. In 1537 Oud-Amelisweerd was recognised as a knight's courtyard town. In the disaster year 1672, the house was destroyed by the French. Around 1770 the then owner restructured the estate: a park with extensive gardens was created and the country house was converted into a summer residence. The garden structure and the house as you see it now, date from this period. In 1808 Oud-Amelisweerd was sold to Louis Napoleon, who also owned Nieuw-Amelisweerd. Oud-Amelisweerd had a vegetable garden with pineapple plants and fruit trees. Now a pop-up exhibition is organized.
