This was where Maria's Rozendal monastery once stood. The hermit Dodo van Haske who died here showed signs of stigmata and was declared a saint. The monastery was destroyed by pirates, but Kapelle van Haskerdijken church still pays tribute to Saint Dodo van Haske. 

You continue directly south and arrive at Heerenveen station. It was here that three local peat masters set up a company to buy land for peat mining. So the village came to be known as ‘heeren-van-het-veen’, which means ‘lords of the peat’. Over time, the name was shortened to Heerenveen.
