It is a two-level construction, with an entrance supported by four pillars. On the floor, above the entrance, there is a balcony. Nobody knows the history of the house. It is said that after the retreat of the Turkish, it was the residence of the first governor of Banat, Claudius Florimund Mercy. On the plan of the town from 1758, in this area there is a group of houses and the plots of land in front of them bears the name of Piațeta Mercy. The governor may have lived in one of these houses, but it is well-known that he wasn't alive when this building was constructed; he died in 1734, while fighting in Parma.
