Overmeer (Noord-Holland, Netherlands)

Jump to: navigation, search

Overmeer, a hamlet in the Dutch province of North Holland, formerly the seat of a Mennonite congregation, which had a small membership and at least from 1680 was united with the neighboring congregation at Weesp, though in this union Overmeer seems to have had a degree of independence. By 1718 the Overmeer congregation had died out.
