This house, belonging to the Journeymen's Association from the formerly Timișoara, was famous for the guilds' tree, which has been placed at the corner of the building. This tree was, in fact, a tree trunk dressed in iron pane, fixed in the wall with an iron bar locked with a padlock which did not have slot for the key. The journeymen who visited the town came prepared with a peg with a big head, engraved with the initials of their names, hammered into the tree's trunk. The original is now in the Banatului Museum, but the one exposed at the corner of the building is just a copy of the original one.
