Oudheusden is a village in the Dutch province of North Brabant. It is located in the municipality of Heusden, about 1 km south of the city of Heusden itself.

The name Oudheusden literally means "Old-Heusden" deriving from the Dutch oud (English: old) and the old name of the town: Heusden (now another town in the Dutch province of North Brabant).

Oudheusden was a separate municipality until 1935, when it became part of Drunen.[1]
