Appen, Netherlands

Appen is a hamlet in the Dutch province of Gelderland.[1] It is located in the municipality of Voorst, about 0.5 km southwest of Gietelo, to which it belongs.[2]

According to the 19th-century historian A.J. van der Aa,[3] it had about 770 inhabitants in the middle of the 19th century. It is not clear what area he included in this count, as the hamlet is much smaller now, consisting of only two or three roads.
