    Lemaire Mill
    In the late 18th and 19th centuries, Houffalize was an important tanning and milling centre. The remains of the Lemaire mill and tannery can still be seen along the Ourthe, in Rue du Moulin Lemaire. The mill dates back to the 18th century, while the Lemaire tannery was founded around 1830 and "made strong leather", which was used to make soles, while another neighbouring tannery "made uppers and corroirs".
