Reassembled: 1975 to 1978
At its original site, this two-storey timber-framed house rested on a rendered stone plinth, and the windward-side gable was slate-clad. The timbers on the entrance side feature rich ornamental carving work, with red and green rope moulding encircling the house and the leafy tendrils with red buds and tulip blossoms being particularly noteworthy. Some alterations significantly interfering in its original structure were done to the building over its history. For example, the exterior stairs had to be removed when the house was still in its original location in the 1920s, as they had become an obstacle to traffic. This meant that the entrance was lowered.
Originally built for residential purposes, the building belonged to the local administration from the second half of the 19th century and was used as the town hall until 1969. Afterwards, the building stood empty for some years, was in danger of dilapidation and could finally be moved to Hessenpark Open Air Museum. Until 1982, it was home to the museum’s administration. Between 1983 and 2006, it served as an exhibition building, later as a utility building for the administration. Today, the House from Ewersbach is home to the Open Air Museum’s education centre.
