History of the House Residents:
This land, as a yard or garden, went through the hands of many Český Krumlov citizens, from as early as 1527. From the beginning of the 18th century the yard belonged to the Wenhart family. They also owned a house, No. 6, in the street Rybářská. In 1840 Kateřina took it over from Antonín Wenhart, still as a yard. The building was reconstructed to a residential house, where from 1922 - 1945 a pork butcher resided.

Present Use:
Residential house.
