Hôtel de Saint-Aignan. Construit par l'architecte Pierre Le Muet, de 1645 à 1650, pour Claude de Mesmes, comte d'Avaux, négociateur de la paix de Wesphalie et surintendant des finances, il fut agrandi en 1691 pour Paul de Beauvillier, le gouverneur des trois petits-fils de Louis XIV, gendre de Colbert. La façade sur cour est structurée par un ensemble de pilastres colossaux d'ordre corinthien encadrant de grandes baies, et le côté gauche habille de fausses fenêtres l'ancien rempart de Philippe-Auguste. Michel-Etienne Turgot, prévôt des Marchands et son fils Anne, futur ministre de Louis XVI, y habitèrent. Très défiguré à la Révolution, il fut transformé en mairie d' arrondissement de 1795 à 1823.

Leigh-Pemberton House On 31 May 1979, the Regional Chairman, Mr T G Boardman, M.C., T.D., of the National Westminster Bank Limited presented these premises to the Dean and Chapter of Lincoln for the use of the Cathedral. In recognition of this generous benefaction the building was named after the Chairman of the Bank Mr Robert Leigh Pemberton, D.L. The building stands directly over the Roman street, the Via Principalis, that ran North through the upper enclosure of Lindum Coloniae. It was built about 1543, to serve as the residence of a merchant of the City. Both internally and externally it is a fine example of half-timbered work. Extensive restoration was carried out by the National Provincial Bank in 1929 and again in 1970 when it was adapted to serve (till early 1979) as the Lincoln Area Office of the National Westminster Bank Limited.
