Roosevelt family

Roots in Oud-Vossemeer, The Netherlands

When you visit Huys van Roosevelt, you can’t avoid it. The ancestors of the well-known former presidents of the USA, Theodore and Franklin Delano Roosevelt and his spouse Eleanor Roosevelt, are originally from Oud-Vossemeer. This makes us really proud. The rich history of these world leaders comes to life in our brasserie and restaurant. The beautiful photos and inspiring quotes will inspire both young and old. To discover the unique history of Oud-Vossemeer, you can combine a visit to our brasserie with a visit to the Roosevelt Information Center, the ‘The Four Freedoms’ monument, the Dutch Reformed Church and the place where the ancestors of the legendary world leaders used to live. The monumental wrought iron cornice and the old farrier are also just a stone’s throw away. Enjoying good cuisine and discovering culture are able to be combined superbly. We offer special arrangements for groups. Please, contact us for more information.
