The Townhouse

If its existence is acquired, nothing distinguishes the town house on Arenberg's map (Fig. 53) . Too small to be visible on the whole town, a sketch of the provost of Gerlache in 1793 gives more details on this building (Fig. 54) . This sketch reflects the typical general appearance of a medieval building and will therefore be taken as a reference for 3D modeling (Fig. 55) . This old town house stood at the center of the current Place de l'Hotel de Ville. This building housed both school and prison! On the first floor a wooden balcony was used for official publications (Ref [2]).
