In the 17th-century the 'Herengracht of the Jordaan', as the Bloemgracht was called, was home to paint and sugar factories, and a large number of fine gabled houses. A striking example is De Drie Hendricken , built in a sober Renaissance style. The gable stones above the ground floor depict a townsperson, a farmer and a seafarer.

Many artists also lived on Bloemgracht, including Jurriaen Andriessen, whose work is displayed in the Rijksmuseum.
