Louisa Holthuysen, owner of a prestigious house she had inherited from past generations, bequeathed the property to the city of Amsterdam at the time of her passing. Her only request was that the building, and its contents, become a museum known by the name of Willet-Holthuysen. The building remains open to the public, and contains many decorative paintings (including some of unknown origin).

Two skeletons were found next to each other in Drenthe, Netherlands. The skeletons were dated back to between 160 BC and 220 AD. One of the skeletons was thought to be a female and the other a male so scientists called them the Weerdinge couple or Mr. and Mrs. Veenstra. It was determined that both skeletons were men and the name was changed to Weerdinge Men.
