Markenburg Steenweg 15 is the example of a building in a street just behind the big shopping street. Since the 15th century, it has often had an informal business character and served as a inn in the early centuries. As the city grew, the street has grown from "informal supply street", behind the main shopping street, to the full shopping street. As a result, the buildings in this street have also been refurbished and now look neat. However, the ground floor of this property is still the backdoor of a large store. Upstairs there are currently nice apartments.
The property already originated in the 15th century. Started as an inn/wine pub with a gateway to the courtyard, which probably also had some small houses. In the further development of the courtyard, the gate was unused and the ground floor was used as the back door of a large store. Unlike the neighboring houses, this building does not have a basement, a fact which fits in the history of origin. Both the front and the whole interior have been thoroughly renovated. Many aspects, such as the beam layers of the floors, date back to 1780.
