Hoeve Boschoord - Boschoord
Hoeve Boschoord is a historic farmhouse that was probably once built as a reclamation barn for the Doldersummerveld.
In 1896, the barn was renamed 'Farm Colony VII', making it part of the Colonies of Benevolence. The Society of Benevolence used the farm as a nursing facility for the 'youthful and anti-social morons'.
According to the Society, the vagrants, beggars and orphans in particular, who lived in the unfree Colonies, needed to be re-educated. They lived in large, square asylums.
Still today, the farm is a treatment centre for young people in need of specialised care.
