One of the oldest buildings from stone and with rooftiles in Aalsmeer is called the "Schoutenhuis" and was the home of the local "Schout". This was the local sheriff and responsible for order in Aalsmeer. He ruled over the police and was herewith one of the most importnat city officials. In a town fire in 1844 this house prevented from fruther spreading towards the Dorpsstraat and Zijdstraat, herewith prooving the importance of stone buildings.
