For its significance for nature and landscape beauty: the history of the Rijsterbos and its residents

The landscape of Rijs has a long history. The landscape knew important moments of both creation and destruction. Reclaimed in the 17th century, Rijs grew out to be a typical landscape dominated by the rural nobility. Many writers, cartographers and newspapers have described the landscape. The local people were concerned about the demolition of the house and the splintering of the estate in 1937. The purchase by It Fryske Gea caused relief and a new period of prosperity started. After forestry, the recreation sector grew out to be one of the most important economical income sources from the second half of the 20th century.
