As a consequence of the municipal reform in 1975, local administration was moved from Freckenhorst to Warendorf, so this old town hall building now houses a citizens office and the offices of local firms.
The present building, which dates from the 1950s, replaces the old town hall built in 1889. It was a good example of the architectural simplicity of official brick-built Prussian buildings. In this photo from 1900 you can see the police officer, the treasurer and the clerk. To the right of the door was the office, to the left the mayor’s office; the rest of the house was his residence.
The Eschkötter House on the Hoetmarer Straße was the residence of the convent administrator before and after the town fire of 1796, until he moved to the Boeselager curia in the administrative building of the church.
