Au d’ Brandy Route is located on Arbeid Adelt farm.  Farm Cottages at Au d’Brandy Route was part of the original farm De Doorns, one of the first four farms to be in the Hex River Valley in the year 1731.  The old carriageway in those days always followed the easiest route near water for the sake of the animals.
