The sexton’s house still exists today and can also be visited. The building is part of the Vincent van Gogh House. An artist-in-residence facility has been created on the grounds, with a guesthouse and gallery. A new studio was built on the site of the old barn.

Van Gogh in

Sexton’s House

Beside the church stands a small house that was acquired by the Dutch Reformed Church of Zundert in 1862/63 upon the advice of Vincent’s father. The building was put to use as the home for the church’s sexton. Vincent’s father collected the necessary funds and personally contributed ten Dutch guilders. The sexton’s house is now an extension of the Van GoghHuis with an artist-in-residence.
