Sir George Skene was Provost of the city of Aberdeen in Scotland from 1676 to 1685. Today he is most famous and widely known not for his time as Provost, but for his house. Dating from 1545, Provost Skene’s House now houses an attractive series of period rooms, furnished to show how people lived in the 17th, 18th and early 19th centuries.
