THE DU PLESSIS HOUSE IN PARAMARIBO Maria Susanna du Plessis moved into this beautiful building in 1783, and inhabited it until her death in 1795.
Around 1750 this house was built on the corner of the square and the Tamarindelaan opposite the Presidential Palace. From 1783 it was inhabited by Susanna du Plessis. The house is still known in Paramaribo as the du Plessis house. Susanna died in 1795 and was buried at the cemetery the old Orange Garden, where her mother and her first husband were also.
She had written the text on her tombstone herself: "Finally I have come to rest." Her gravestone has been bricked in since 1835 in the floor of the Reformed Church in Paramaribo that was built on the old cemetery 'de orange garden'.
