Presumably built in the 15th century

In the crest coat of arms of Jakob I.
von Sierck (1439-1456). This building
used to be the seat of the financial
  administration of the Archbishops. 

 

Right up to the 17th century, the "Old Cellars” used to be situated at the location of the house with the crest of the archbishop James I. of Sierck (1439-1456), spanning the following three houses. The crest unites the Cross of Trier with the pilgrim mussel in the crest of the Sierck house. The revenues from the archbishop's estates and rights were collected and administrated in the cellar. The estate remained in the territorial lord’s possession until 1654. After the sale and repeated destruction, the present-day building was erected after 1691.
