The hofje was founded by the Lutheran Church in 1615. Originally the people living in the hofje were members of this church, but nowadays only the board of the hofje is appointed by the Lutheran Church. The hofje adjoins the Lutheran church itself, and has an unusual addition in the garden, namely an outdoor pulpit. From this pulpit, the minister could address the women in the hofje.
With 5 houses, it is the smallest hofje in Haarlem.
