The stately neo-Gothic St Nicholas Church was built between 1901 to 1903 and is exceptionally beautifully decorated. On this spot there once stood a barn church that was used during the period when Frederik Hendrik captured ‘s-Hertogenbosch (1629) and the Catholic religion was banned. Catholics more or less clandestinely went to services in such a barn church without crosses, clock or tower. During the French occupation, the practice of the Catholic religion was allowed again and around 1840, engineers from the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management constructed a church here with a simple design and furnishings. At the start of the 20th century, there were demands for a nicer church with more daylight and the current neo-Gothic church was built based on a design by Hubert van Groenendaal.
