This building is said to be the oldest in Oude Molstraat (though by far not as old as the street itself which dates from the Middle Ages).
It was built during the first half of the 17th century (whether 1598 marks the start of the building is not clear), with later alterations.
Originally it had a stepped gable, which was changed later.
The shop front was added probably in the 1870s.
It is a state monument.
