The village has a rich history, with many monuments. The former Dutch Reformed Church (now the Protestant Church, PKN) from the 14th century stands on a place already mentioned in a charter from 893 (known by a copy of Caesarius van Milendonk from 1222) under the goods of Prüm in the Eifel . The Prüm property was sold in 1609 by the States of Gelderland to Count Ernst Casimir of Nassau-Dietz.

There was a copper mill on the border with Klarenbeek. In 1870 the village had 68 inhabitants.

Photography Tips

Het dorp heeft een rijke geschiedenis, met vele monumenten. De voormalige Nederlands hervormde kerk (thans de Protestantse Kerk, PKN) uit de 14e eeuw staat op een plaats die reeds wordt genoemd in een oorkonde uit 893 (bekend door een kopie van Caesarius van Milendonk uit 1222) onder de goederen van Prüm in de Eifel. De Prümsche bezittingen werden in 1609 door de Staten van Gelderland aan Graaf Ernst Casimir van Nassau-Dietz verkocht.

Op de grens met Klarenbeek stond een kopermolen. In 1870 telde het dorp 68 inwoners.
