  • History of Het Rechthuis
    The courthouse was probably built around 1700, where the first 'town hall' of the municipality of Dantumadiel (Dantumadeel in Dutch) was later established. The grietmen of the Grietenij met on the first floor. This can be seen as the predecessor of the current mayor and civil servants. The ground floor has traditionally always had a catering function.

  • Dantumadiel the 7th Grietenij
    The municipality of Dantumadiel originated from the Grietenijen. Originally, these were areas over which a grietman ruled and exercised law on minor civil matters. Crimes were handled by the Court of Friesland in Leeuwarden. Initially, grietmen often acted independently, but from the 14th century onwards they increasingly began to work together. The Gretels thus became representatives of a large area, a go or shire, a kind of county. After the establishment of the Republic of the United Netherlands in 1580, the grietman was appointed by the States of Friesland and the Stadtholder. With the introduction of the municipal law of 1851, the grietenijs were abolished and Dantumadiel became a municipality.
