Jost Stumpf, Mayor of Alsfeld for 3 terms and a master baker built this house on the south-western side of the market place. To accommodate his growing family, the house was extended towards the Rittergasse. This is the earliest half-timbered house in Alsfeld with magnificent painted wood carvings and a monumental scroll along its length. Lower Saxony Fan Rosettes, typical of the Renaissance period, adorn the frontage. Jost Stumpf, dressed in the latest contemporary clothing, has been carved on the left-hand corner post.
