Reassembled: 1984 to 1988
This timber-framed forester’s house from Melgershausen in northern Hesse is quite extraordinary. Its corner posts with carved and painted figures and other Renaissance-style ornaments as well as its elegantly curved main door are fine examples of baroque timber-frame artisanship. Before it was transferred to the Open Air Museum, the house had stood empty for some time after its owner had built a new house directly across from it. At its new location on the market square of the Open Air Museum, the building houses the permanent exhibition of a historic print shop in the style of the 1950s.
