The corn market



Built on the location of the former customs house in 1843, it was originally a corn market. After the 1870 war decline, the town decided to build a fl oor in the Market in 1888. In 1889, the Humanist library is settled on the fi rst fl oor of the budding with the museum as wall as the town records in 1909. However, the ground fl oor was still used as a corn market until it became an all-purpose room. The façade bears a mosaic by Cesar Winterhalter (1907) with a central inscription framed on both sides by a lion, emblematic animal on Selestat coat of arms, and an eagle.
