Eenigenburg is closely linked to the history of West Frisia. Count Floris V built his castle Nuwendoorn nearby to consolidate his victory over the unruly West Frisians. The citadel was lost and forgotten until a farmer discovered the remnants while plowing his fields. The ruins are now open to visitors.
In the museum ‘Surmerhuizen’ you can trace the history of the ‘separatists’ Gerrit and Jannetje Eenigenburg, who fled the village in the 19th century because of their religious beliefs and settled in the United States of America.
