History of Bosschenhoofd 

The area that would later become Bosschenhoofd (Noord-Brabant), belonged to Hoeven from the end of the thirteenth century onward. The county of Breda initially covered almost the entire area we now call West Brabant.

The soil in West Brabant contained a lot of peat. In 1301, the cutting of peat was in full swing and the canal in Oudenbosch already existed at that time. In 1840, Bosschenhoofd had 269 inhabitants and 361 in 1860. They were mainly pioneers from Hoeven, who built small farms on the rugged grounds here. In 1882, a school was built in Bosschenhoofd and there wasn’t a church until 1886.

On the first of January 1997, Bosschenhoofd merged with Oudenbosch, Hoeven, Oud Gastel and Nieuw Gastel into the new municipality of Halderberge, due to a reorganisation. Previously, Bosschenhoofd and Hoeven together had formed the municipality of Hoeven.
