This colonial-style house was built at the turn of the last century. Chao Praya Mahitorn moved his family from across the river to Rajvithi road, Samsen, where the house stood for over 100 years before it was moved to the present site in Nonthaburi.
Throughout the years, at least three generations have lived under its roofs. There have been happiness and tragedies, life and death. When Chao Praya Mahitorn moved to a new home next to it in 1922, the house was left in disrepair particularly during the last 40 years. It was disassembled and taken to this present site in 2004. Amazingly, all the wood were found in perfect condition after all these years. Every piece of the house has been reconstructed exactly like the original except the internal partition.
Chao Praya Mahithorn (La-or Krairiksh) served the country under three reigns, King Chulalongkorn, King Vajiravudh and King Prachathipok in legal affairs of state and was his Majesty's Principal private secretary and Lard Chief justice from 1919 until the retired in 1932.
The house has a guardian angle who comes in the guise of a little girl when she pleases.
