    Cremershuis

    Cremershuis - Ootmarsum

    The Cremershuis is a fine example of a trademan's house.
    After the 80 year war, there was economical growth and in 1656 Joan Cremer and his wife Jenneken Dreesman moved to their new house at the market street.

    In 1972-1973 the building was renovated and the front was brought back to the original design. One of the former owner had a shop here and had a big shopping window placed at the street side.

    Nowadays the Fröhlich antiques shop is at the rear of the building.
