Alkmaar Architectuur: Provenhuys

Alkmaar Architectuur: Provenhuys
The photos of Alkmaar architecture I took all have some historic significance. If only I remember what Arthur told me 8 months ago!

The plaque seems to list a number of people associated with the building of this Provenhuys. Is "huys" Old Dutch for "huis" (house)?

Alkmaar was chartered in 1254 and is most famous for its summer kaasmarkt (traditional cheese market show) on Fridays. It's a very touristy thing, but then, I'm a tourist! :D

The building is proudly flying the flag of Alkmaar.
