Deurne Castle was built shortly before 1387 by Gevaert Everaertszoon van Doerne on a sandy elevation in the swampy valley of a small stream; the Vlier. It was a square building with several turrets. Due to the thickness of the walls it probably did not have a real military purpose.

In 1511 the castle was burned down by troops from Guelders but was rebuilt. Only to be plundered by Spanish troops in 1599. In 1645 the bailiff Otto de Vischere rebuilt the decaying castle into an inn. In 1653 the castle was enlarged by Rogier, Baron of Leefdael, who had bought it in 1651.
Around 1750 the height of the turrets was lowered; removing the spires, and part of the north wing was demolished. In 1759 the castle was bought by Theodorus de Smeth. His family also thoroughly rebuilt the castle and would own it until World War II. During the liberation of Deurne in 1944 the castle suffered heavily from Allied fire. The remains we see on the  above photos mostly date back to the 17th century.
