An unkept building stood on this place as early as 1521. It was twice damaged by floods, first in 1526 than after reconstruction, in 1667. 21 yeas later, in 1668, it was devastated by the Great Fire. Its reconstruction took another twenty-one years. The present form of the building was attained after it had undergone several modifications. First it was a granary, and then starting with 1923 it housed the brasovian section of the national archives. Amongst the many valuable documents, the earliest letter written in Romanian is also preserved here, a rhymed letter written in 1521 by merchant Neacsu of Campulung.
