Just like the Julianadorp district, Emmastad is also a residential area that was founded by the oil company Shell, the company that established itself on the island in 1915. Julianadorp initially served as a Shell district, but after it was full, the company started building Emmastad. The district was specifically intended for executives and senior employees of the oil company. That is why the district is mainly full of luxurious villas, spacious houses and gardens.
