Initially Habaai plantation (105 hectares) was a mixed plantation company. Later it served as a country retreat. When in the late 19th century the Landhuis was owned by the Sisters of ‘The Immaculate Conception Penitents Recollectinen’, it became a boarding school and orphanage. The name Habaai comes from a former Jewish resident. The terrace of the former plantation house is used to host cultural events such as concerts, book and poetry readings, presentations and receptions. During gallery opening hours art lovers may enjoy a cup of coffee on the terrace.
