The Villa Modiano was built around 1905-1906 as the residence of the banker Yiako Modiano and his family by the architect Ali Modiano. The villa is also know as The old Governor’s Residence, because it was hosting each time the Commander of Macedonia and later on the Minister of Northern Greece. The Eclectic style is dominating with Art Nouveau elements. In 1913 it was bought by the Greek Government and in 1947 it was used by the Army Medical School. During the early 60’s it was used by the Priest School and at the end of the same decade by the Ministry of Northern Greece. Today it houses the Folklife and Ethnological Museum of Macedonia.
