Steenwijkerwold is a village in the Dutch province of Overijssel. It is located in the municipality of Steenwijkerland, about 5 km northwest of Steenwijk. Steenwijkerwold was a separate municipality until 1973, when it became a part of Steenwijk.[3]

History

It was first mentioned in 1376 as Steenwickerwolde, and means forest near Steenwijk.[4] It developed when Kerkbuurt, Gendringen en Thij, three esdorp villages, merged. In 1401, a church was built, and the village became independent from the neighbouring city in 1543. The Dutch Reformed Church dates from the 15th century.[5] In 1840, it was home to 1,369 people.[6]

The dolmen (megalithic tomb) O1 used to be located in Steenwijkerwold. In 1781, it was in good condition and probably had 6 capstones. In the 1840s, it was thoroughly removed.[7]
