The Klaipėda Town Hall had been built from 18th to 19th century, inheriting the then prominent classistic architecture. The house boasts a rich history. The first owner of the building was Danish consul and merchant Lork, whom had built the house for himself and later transferred the ownership rights to his relative Consenti. Later, during the Napoleonic Wars, this building was a temporary (1807-1809) residence of the Prussian king Friedrich Wilhelm III and queen Louise. However, all of this changed in 1864, when the magister of Klaipėda bought the building, turning it into the city’s town hall.
Since 2011, the house is once again being used by the mayor of Klaipėda and a part of the city’s local administration.
