Ignác Šechtl and Josef Jindřich Šechtl: March: House No. 247, Prokop Street.

Just looking at it you can feel that this is a strong and resilient house. Along with its alter ego, neighbouring house no. 248, it survived all the catastrophes that befell Tábor, including the worst of them when the Swedes plundered the town. Perhaps it was because the first documented owner (of both houses) in the mid 16th century was butcher Jan Švehla, known as Chlubna. It is said that the walls of the house hid treasure concealed there by its first wealthy owners. In the 17th century inheritors of the house still would make mutual assurances that if found the treasure would be divided equally.
