Dating from 1545, Provost Skene's House is one of the oldest buildings in Aberdeen and is a rare surviving example of the city's medieval burgh architecture. Lord Provost George Skene was Lord Provost of Aberdeen in the 17th Century, from 1676 to 1685. The house has undergone several alterations and changes of use in its history and is today a museum with free entry to the general public.

The large modern building opposite Provost Skene's House—St. Nicholas House—was until recently the offices of the Aberdeen City Council. As Council staff have recently relocated to new offices in nearby Marischal College, St. Nicholas House is now due to be demolished.
