  Coat of arms at the Höveln Alleyway
by sim1

This is a close-up of the coat of arms in the wall on the left side of the door. When you click on to enlarge the picture you can see the date of 1570.
The Höveln Alleway was designated to become an almshouse in 1481 when it was owned by councilmen Tidemann Evinghusen. The date 1570 is when the mayor Gotthard von Höveln took over the complex. The Alleyway was named after him. In 1792 all the buildings were renewed and the houses you can see today date back to that time.
