This four-storied residential townhouse was constructed in 1909 under a project designed by architect Zbigniew Brochwicz Lewiński for Emil Weksler, an entrepreneur, in the modernized Gothic style. In 1909-1944 the ground floor premises of the house were occupied by the Szkocka (Scottish) coffeehouse where prominent Lviv mathematicians used to gather.

The townhouse is an architectural (protection no. 731-M) and historical monument  (protection no. 1232).

The monument to the count, a Polish playwright and a honorary citizen of Lviv, was set up in 1897 on the Akademicka square on the initiative of the Literary and Artistic Circle. Its author was sculptor Leonard Marconi. After WW2 the monument was transported to Poland and installed on the market square in Wrocław in 1956.
