The last preserved house from the lottery win

Count Johann Friedrich Alexander (1706-1791) finally led the residence to high prosperity, also thanks to the settlement of early industrial production. The best example of this is the Rasselstein ironworks, founded in 1738. Alexander was a man of outlandish ideas. And so he introduced a lottery in 1740: For the stake of half a guilder, one could win a turnkey house. For 40 years, the participants "gambled" to get their own four walls.
