Well-known Deurnenaar and Dutchman Friso Wiegersma - also the son of doctor-painter Hendrik Wiegersma - wrote the famous song 'Het Dorp' for his friend Wim Sonneveld. Friso writes in his nostalgia for the old village of Deurne.

The garden path with the tall trees is still there (next to the De Wieger museum on the Oude Liesselseweg) and has since been given its own street sign and plaque.
