Dlouhá no. 94, entrance portal History of the House Residents:
At the end of the 16th century the town sold the building of the old brewery to Kryštof Lepší. His widow Voršila stayed there even in 1600. In that time the building served brewing purposes, because Lepší lived at No. 52 in Široká street. The former brewery was changed into an inhabitable house in the 17th century. In 1643 it was bought by Jindřich Schwingshärl, whose family was followed by a kettle-smith Jiří Hausperger who lived there to 1681. The house then belonged to a tailor Martin Lösch to 1754. In 1790 Josef Skerle stayed there. We do not have any more detailed information about the owners of the house in the 19th century.
