    A medieval looking Council / City Hall.

    Lori & Council Hall

    This beautiful medieval Council Hall was restored in 1911 and in 1984 The beautiful facade is masonry and red brick of sandstone . Between the windows is a statue of Lady Justice ,it is almost real scale.
    Lady Justice is not blindfolded and the Justice done in that evil period was questionable. On the sandstone band it says
    in Latin ,''Honour is God's all, United we stand, Divided we fall." Where one cannot respect or maintain Justice, Wher one cannot find Honesty. Devoutness and Loalty an Empire is on weak grounds."
    Finally above the little archway in the front facade one can see a key-stone in the shape of a woman's head, and the City's Coat of Arms.

    If you don't expect Appingedam to be Amsterdam,or even Leeuwarden,you will enjoy your stay.Its a small town in the very northern part of the Netherlands. Its tranquil canal sides,and picturesque streets make for a very mellow experience. Didn't see (or hear )any other Americans .Granted we were there on a Sunday and things slow down a bit then. So I guess my "Must See Activity" would be just a stroll thru this lovely town.,soaking up the atmosphere of what to an Appalachian American is a truly charming town.
