De Zyfer Cottage

De Zyfer Cottage date from the early 1900’s. De Zyfer is near the park offices and the first teacher at Roodewerf, Visser, taught Nellie Geldenhuis of De Zyfer. When she left school, he married her. In those days you could only visit as far as you could walk. De Zyfer Cottage was restored by the park in 2009336a 336b 336c 336d
