Golub Dobrzyń – timber house

History

The arcaded house “Under the Hood” comes from 1771. It is the last remnant of buildings, that from the Middle Ages to the 17th / 18th centuries surrounded the entire market. Probably initially served as an inn or tavern, because it is located at the former entrance to the town. Houses of this type were a characteristic feature of Polish towns.

Architecture

The building is one-storey, partly with a basement, in a timbered log construction. It is covered by a gable roof with arcades on three pillars from the front. From the back side it has a one-storey outbuilding. The interior of the house is one-space, covered with a beam ceiling. The former kitchen is at the base of a wide chimney. The basement walls were made of pebbles and lime mortar. The entrance to it is outside, under the arcade.

Current state

House “Under the Hood” is the only preserved building of this type in the town, despite the fact that there were still others at the beginning of the 20th century. Currently it houses a tourist information point.
