This house is preserved as the houses were then. From about 1300 to 1500 coopers lived here, just outside of the city´s first wall. From about 1510 to 1680 yarn dyers were the house owners, from 1681 to 1724 weavers lived in the house and from 1724 to 1802 shoemakers. Later in shorter periods a tinker, potter, basket maker, soap maker, plasterer, pewterer and bricklayer had ownership ot the house. Fortunately a hermit lived in the house at a time when many other interesting houses were being modernized an changed inside. That is the reason that no other house in Rothenburg has so much historical character. Here modern times have changed nothing. The hermit did not need electricity and running water. A 48 foot deep well that even today shows a water level of 30 feet was already registred in the year 1400. The leather bucket that was made watertight with clay was hoisted over a wooden roller by a hemp rope. The hermit did not change anything in regard to the hall that runs from the front to the rear of the house and that has a packed clay floor covered by flagstones. He was satisfied with the unbelievable low ceilings that were suitable for the people of past centuries, small as they were with an average height of less than five feet. Handwerkerhaus of city Rothenburg demonstrates the construction of many buildings and facilities of the city in an impressive and vivid way. The history of the House dates back about 700 years and despite a room height of about 1.50 meters this structure is today an example of his art. Both building and setting up recall the Rothenburg of bygone days.
