ANNETA’S STORY

Each accommodation carries the story of the people that have lived in it. Anneta’s story was the one we were captivated by in our search of the tale behind what is now 1901 Hermoupolis Maison. 

 

The stone house was in fact Anneta’s dowry given to her husband by her adoptive parents in 1901. The concept of dowry had been very popular In Greece at the beginning of the 20th century imposed by social and economic constraints of the time. Regardless of the bride’s beauty or neatness the family was obligated to relinquish a portion of their wealth to the groom in order for the marriage to proceed.

 

On the Saturday of June 15 1901, by the incentive of her parents, Anneta Maridaki was married to Dimitris Aggelakis who belonged to Syros’ upper class bourgeoisie. Dimitris along with Anneta acquired the old stone house with the small yard, inner well and the marble terrace with a view upon Syros bay.

 

Built in the mid-19th century, the building, with its unique architecture, has been the residence of the Maridakis family from 1876 to 1901 while today, with full regard for its history it makes what is now 1901 Hermoupolis Maison.
