Schlachtermarkt and Mr. Parson's Cow Jun 26, 2009
Schlachtermarkt, butchers' market, is the name of the smaller market square behind the old town hall. It now has a little food and knickknack market. A passageway through the old town hall connects it with the main market square.

The house of the free masons in Schlachtermarkt was designed and donated by court architect Georg Adolph Demmler who himself was a member of the loge „Harpokrates zur Morgenröthe“. After the fall of the DDR regime which banned all associations of this kind, the loge has been refounded in 1992 and is again using the house together with a second loge which has been founded one year later.

The fountain in the square, 1980 by Stephan Horota, depicts a famous Mecklenburg folk song: „Herrn Pastor sien Kauh“ (Mr. Parson's Cow). It tells in a humoristic way how the cow has died and everybody in town gets a piece. The song has at least a hundred verses and new ones are invented all the time.

I love the idea of an ever-growing folk song. I must try to learn it some day!
