ZWARTE AREND

Castle Zwarte Arend can be found in the town of Deurne. The castle was erected in 1784 and pretty much nothing changed to the castle since the 18th century. The O.C.M.W. (an organisation that helps people in financial and other troubles) bought the domain in 1957. Unfortunately they didn't buy the whole park and so only one fourth of the original park remains the rest was divided in lots and sold. The O.C.M.W. turned the castle in a retirement home. A fire destroyed the attic in 1969, restorations were done immediately. The castle was for sale a few years ago. I don't know if it was sold but at the moment another organisation named De Terp uses the castle as offices. Castle Zwarte Arend can be seen partly from the public road.
