Workers' cottages Griendtsveen - Erica
Griendtsveen and the surrounding area became a workers' centre thanks to peat and husk extraction and the peat litter factories. The Griendtsveen Peat Litter Company then decided to build offices, factories and homes, among other things, all in the same architectural style.
Factory workers of lower ranks lived closest to the factories, for whom austere cottages were built. The more you move west, the more luxurious the houses became. Indeed, people with higher positions lived further away.
