Overschie [sub-municipality]

This is in NW Rotterdam. The name of the original villsge was Schie; in the Middle Ages a new settlement developed in its neighbourhood, named Nieuwerschie, so the old settlement was named Ouwerschie (old Schie). Later that was named colloquially Overschie. It is now proud of the Van Nelle factory, a model of industrial archaeology.
