Ab 1580 lässt Bischof Julius Echter das Haus renovieren. 1971 wechselt der letzte Pfründner in das Wohnstift Steigerwald. Heute Stadtbibliothek.

Regarding Bürgerspital / Municipal Hospital. Although "Bürgerspital" is usually translated into English as some sort of hospital, this is only partly correct. That is, such institutions provided not only medical care, but also other aid to the poor and to travelers that would be considered some sorts of social services.
