Accommodations in Sevenum
Sevenum is a town in the Dutch province of Limburg. The centre of Sevenum has almost 6,500 inhabitants. This makes it the second largest town in the municipality after Horst. Until 1 January 2010, Sevenum was a municipality formed by the towns of Sevenum, Kronenberg and Evertsoord.
Traditionally, Sevenum has been an agricultural village (esdorp). Already in the Bronze and Iron Ages there was some habitation, which is evident from a number of finds from that period. The oldest document in which Sevenum is mentioned is a letter of indulgence from 1317 that also mentions the patron saints of the church: Fabianus and Sebastianus. Sebastianus is also seen in Sevenum’s coat of arms and symbolically in the flag.
In 1674 Sevenum became an independent seigneury, which belonged to the Overkwartier van Gelre or Spanish Upper Guelders. During the War of the Spanish Succession, the area was occupied by Prussian troops, and so it remained German as part of Prussian Upper Guelders for about a century, until the arrival of French troops in 1794. During this French period, Sevenum was annexed to Horst (1800). By Royal Decree of Leopold I of Belgium in 1836, Sevenum was split off from Horst as an independent municipality.
From 1745 onwards, the reclamation of the wastelands began (initially on a small scale). From 1938 onwards, the reclamation was tackled on a large scale, creating a new church village: Evertsoord (completed in 1959).
