Immediately upon their arrival in Jilhlava in october 1860, Bernard Mahler (1827-1889), his wife Marie Mahler-Herrmann (1837-1889) and their son Gustav Mahler made their home on the first floor of this house. The house was rented from Anastatia Kampova.

The foundations of the house go back to the 16th century. During the reconstruction of the 19th century, a second floor was most likely added, along with an interesting facade, and It Is also from this period that the front doors originate. In 1960, a memorial plaque was placed on the house during the celebrations of the one-hundredth anniversary of Mahler's birth, sculptor Milan Knobloch. The house underwent extensive renovations in 2008-2009.
