Façades of The Hague #97

House built mid 18th century, Wagenstraat corner Nieuwe Molstraat.

With its late Louis XIV style façade, it is one of the most impressive of old buildings in Wagenstraat.

August 23rd 1937 John F. Kennedy spent the night here as a twenty year old student during his two months European trip.

In those days the Salvation Army was housed in the building.

Clearly, the young American student didn’t care much for luxury.

Although real Kennedy fans may want to kiss its door steps, the building is a state monument now especially for architectural and stylistic reasons.
