The 17th-century West Frisian farmhouse at Grosthuizen number 52 is called 'Mijn Geneasure' is the most special farm in the village. In 1820 a radical renovation, after which nothing has changed. "Mijn Genoegen" is exactly the same inside and out as 200 years ago and has rightly been designated as a national monument. On the one side the chickens walk and on the other side the sheep. There is also a workers house on their own yard.
