This monumental Canal House at the Keizersgracht, or Emperors’ Canal, was built in 1672, during the Golden Age. At that time, Amsterdam experienced unprecedented growth as industry and trade were flourishing. To accommodate the many immigrants and attract the wealthy, the Keizersgracht was one of the three canals that were dug around the old town. The canal was named after Emperor Maximilian of Austria. The three canals became an icon of urban planning and architecture and have been added to the UNESCO World Heritage List. Famous painters, poets, merchants, and many other prominent personalities found their refuge at the Keizersgracht, including America’s second president John Adams. The design of the residences and warehouses were entirely left to the taste and the purse of its wealthy builders. That resulted in the great architectural diversity that characterizes the canals. Our Canal House is one of a series of houses designed by master carpenter Samuel van der Hagen in 1672, and among the best preserved.
