Ontvangershuis Assen

The 'ontvangershuis' (lit: 'reception house') is the oldest private residence in Assen and can be found at the Brink. Once it was one of the buildings of the Maria in Campis Monastery and has most likely been the home of a priest. Many years later the local authoroties used it as an office as well as a guesthouse for important guests.
The province of Drenthe bought the house in 1955, and soon after that it became a part of the Drents Museum. It still is today.

Look at the pretty fence on both sides of the steps leading to the front door. The fence once belonged to a manor in Zuidlaren.
