In 1934, the Liberal Mutualist Preventorium was founded. This association managed the Home Edouard Pecher as a colony from 1937. In 1940, the Home was recognized as a preventorium. During the war, the buildings were occupied by both the Germans and the Allies. In 1952, the preventorium was developed into one of the most modern in Belgium and in 1967 it was recognized as a first category preventorium. In 1996, the building was sold to the Municipality of Koksijde. In the early 60’s my wife stayed here for about 3 years.
