Landhuis Knip is called ‘Landhuis Kenepa’ by the locals. This name comes from the Kenepa tree, a small local fruit tree. The Landhuis dates from the beginning of the 18th century. It was one of the most prosperous plantations on the island. The Landhuis is an important monument in the history of Curaçao. It was here that on August 17, 1795, under the leadership of the well-known slave Tula, a number of slaves started the slave rebellion. It was almost a century later, 1863, that slavery was abolished in Curacao. Now, Landhuis Knip proudly holds the Museum  about Tula and the rebellion revolt, where one can experience the African/Curacao heritage.
