Today united, the two houses along the main street used to be separate and had house numbers 37 and 38 in the 1930s. 
The house features architectural elements that bear witness to the rich history of the building. During the comprehensive renovation work in 2012, rare wall paintings dating as far back as the 16th century were discovered in the north building. We assume the paintings relate to the people of Krško and the Protestant movement. Research has shown that Janez Vajkard Valvasor lived in the south building. At the end of the 19th century this was home to writer, lawyer and mayor Dr. Janez Mencinger. A part of the house is open for guided tours (guides from the Krško City Museum).
