History

Not much history is known about this region. The area has been inhabited since before our era. Hooge en Lage Mierden share most of its history.  The church had an active role during the Middle Ages. Most of the area relied on agriculture until a cigar factory was founded in 1877AD.  In 1997AD, Reusel, Hooge Mierden, and Lage Mierden united in the community as it is now known. The different living centers are part of this united community as well. 

 

The community offers several things to do:

  • Visit a church in  Hooge Mierden, which still has elements of the 15th century. Also, many other churches can be found in the area. 
  • Another sight is the town hall in Reusel. It is designed based on anthroposophical architecture. 
  • Also, a museum can be visited: “De Bewogen Jaren”. It has objects detailing the occupation during the World War II. 
  • Visit one of the natural areas. Towards Belgium, at the south of Reusel, some beautiful areas can be found. 
  • For older youth, Reusel offers nightlife. For locals, it functions as a town at which youth from all over the area go for a drink on the weekends. This is partly shaped by the town’s location since it is located in between Tilburg and Eindhoven. 
  • Also, the annual fare in September is fun to visit, especially for families.

 

Fun fact: 

  • Although for most of the villages in the Greenzone the names of the villages have a story behind it, for this area it is currently unknown where the names stem from.
