Reformed church (Otterlo)
Built in first entry 1215
Restoration (s) 1968 1973
Monumental status National monument Brick building material
The Church of the village of Otterlo in the Dutch province of Gelderland is owned by the Dutch Reformed Municipality of Otterlo (PKN) and is used weekly for church services. In 1215 there was already a church building in Otterlo. In that year there was talk of the Kerspel Otterlo. From 1580, the area in which Otterlo is situated became Protestant as a result of the Reformation and the church received its own minister. Since 1811 there is a local church council.
The building has a Roman base construction. The choir is late gothic and the tower dates from around 1500. Between 1968 and 1973 a radical restoration took place whereby the church was restored in the style of around 1580.
The organ in the church was delivered in 1896 by W. van Rossum. He was organist and carillonneur in Schoonhoven. However, it is unclear who the builder of the instrument is. In 1974 the organ was extended by Bernhard Koch from Apeldoorn.
