At the "Los Hoes" Open Air Museum
There is one Los Hoes barn at the Open Air Museum. On the top of the roof there are 2 crossed horse heads. The top sides of the roof are covered with straw; the lower part has tiles (sign of wealth).
View from the Los Hoes to the "Vakwerkschuur".
In one of the buildings all kind of tools are on display.
The sign: For Sale - Excellent grease for carriages and oil for machines.
The old farmer's iron works.
The Los Hoes buildings were constructed around a frame of wooden beams. The beams were secured with wooden pins. If necessary the farm could be easily taken apart and moved to richer farm grounds.
The outside walls were made by filling the squares in the wooden frame (vakwerk).
The Molenbeek is the stream that supplied the mill with water. The only building left is the Mill-house; the entrance building of the museum.
One of the old waterwells of Ootmarsum (there is another one in the village). In stead of hoisting a bucket with a rope, the bucket was lowered with a long beam with counter weight.
The "Toffelkeelder" is a small shed in the ground where potatoes were stored.
