1557 erwarben die Bracher
Zisterzienser dieser Hof.
Schultheiß, Bürgermeister und Rat
"transferierten alle und jede Herrlichkeit und Freiheit,
so auf den dem früherem, gänzlich gefreiten

Marker text translated into English:
In 1557 the Cistercian Brothers of Ebrach acquired this house. The village mayor, grand mayor, and city council "transferred any and all corporate rights and freedoms" from the former building owners to the Cistercians. In recognition of this accommodation, the Abbey (of Ebrach) gave the city 100 guilders, "that it might preserve the delightful goodwill between them." Until 1712 the building was the home for the granger (granary keeper) and an administrative building. The levies for Ebrach Abbey from Iphofen and the surrounding villages were stored in the building's granary and basement.
