Ottoman's Head House

The Gothic corner house has an oriel window on a console with a head of a bearded man, which reminded the locals of feared Ottomans and from which the name of the house is derived. After a fire of the neighbouring Golden Sun Inn, both houses were pulled down and replaced by the new building of the town savings bank constructed between the years 1884 and 1885.

 

 

The original house no longer exists.
