This building with brewing rights located near the Old Town Hall is one of the oldest preserved civic houses in Svitavy. The families of Svitavy magistrates originally lived in the house, but in the 18th century it was rebuilt as the roadside Blackamoor Inn (German Zum Mohren). An important date in the history of the house is 1776, when Emperor Josef II stayed in the inn on his journey from the village of Květná to Brno. Not even the town fire of 1781, which completely destroyed the square, impacted the historical layout of the building. The Russian commander Korsakov stayed in the house in 1800 during the Napoleonic Wars.
