This house can be seen in the area of the Ethnographic Park Romulus Vuia. The house was built in the interwar period and it was donated to the museum by Bishop Macarie Drăgoi. It is also the last immovable item of heritage transferred.
The article begins by providing information about Spermezeu, about its history and in general about peasant houses in this geographic area. Then, the information is strictly related to the house „Bishop Macarie Drăgoi”. Arriving in the village, I interviewed some people who knew the owners of the house. From these people I learned a lot of valuable information about the house, the owners, Hognogi spouses, and how the house was built. They did not have any heirs and their belongings came into the possession of other relatives. The house is important because in time it has kept the original form. The last part of the article presents the transfer of the house to the museum area and the reason for transfer. This last information has been taken from Bishop Macarie Drăgoi who, by his action, wished to preserve and redeem this house.
