The building at 24 Pułaskiego Street is a Baroque tenement house in the type of an urban residence, with a palace-like character. It was erected in the first half of the 18th century.

It is situated in the centre of the historic town. It is distinguished by its rich Baroque portal and stucco detail. In the opinion of the Provincial Conservator of Monuments, it is an object of great historical, monumental and cultural significance and requires special treatment. In 2020, the townhouse underwent a major renovation. Every detail was thoroughly renovated. At that time, the granite pillars between the windows and the reveals of the entrance portal were cleaned from the layer of plaster. The window frames were also replaced as part of the work. The building was also restored to its former distinctive colours, which were established through thorough research. The renovation was monitored on an ongoing basis by the City Hall, as well as the Provincial Conservator of Monuments. This extremely valuable example of Silesian bourgeois architecture has shone anew and is one of the most impressive buildings in the city
