Stokholm warehouse

  • Year built: 1730
  • Commissioned by: Anthony de Bruijn
  • Original function: Warehouse for storing grain

Stokholm warehouse. The 'Stokholm' building has its front on the Wolwevershaven dug out in 1609, and its back on the Oude Maas river.

It owes its name to the person who commissioned its construction, the Stockholm-born merchant Anthony de Bruijn. The warehouse has served as a grain store for several centuries and has an enormous capacity.

Around 1910, the warehouses on the other side, at Kuipershaven, were still in full use. After that, Wolwevershaven was mainly used as a mooring for steam tugs.

Now it is the home port of the steam tug Pieter Boele and, together with the Binnen Kalkhaven, the only port that still has the character of a real inland port with beautiful monumental buildings on either side. Stokholm has been renovated into an office building, which now houses various companies.
