The castle de Nijenborgh was built in 1455 by Jacob I as the administrative centre of his county. During the defeat in the War of the Spanish Succession in 1702, the castle was demolished to a height of approximately 4 metres. This put an end to the significance of Weert as a fortified town. In the 19th century, mayor Louis Beerenbroek built the present mansion on the foundations of a corner tower.
