In the building of the treasury, (built 1743-1752) functioned the Salt Office. In 1872 empress Maria Terezia donated the building to the Cenad bishopric, for seat.

In 1950 the bishopric was evacuated and the building expropriated. In the '50's it was even retro ceded, but with no rights to be bishopric seat. On the floors apartments were disposed, while at the ground floor there were different shops. The bishopric could start the redeeming of the building only after 1989. In 1990 the edifice was renovated and the offices of the bishopric were moved back in the old spaces. A wing of the ground floor lodges the museum Bishopric of Timiș.

On the corridor of the first floor can be found the 8 huge strained-glass windows, saved and hidden in the years of the communism by Dr. Baross Bela, with the occasion of the abolition of the Catholic seminary.
