It is generally considered that the Lithuanian Grand Duchy chancellor Kazimierz Pac constructed this mansion in the 17th century by joining several previously built residential houses. The mansion is sometimes called Sirutis mansion after its owner in the 18th century. The mansion was constructed joining possibly four town possessions. The research indicates that the northern part of the mansion was constructed incorporating the cellars of two buildings; with there being a driveway between the two cellars. The southern part was constructed using the cellars of two buildings next to each other; these cellars had entrances from opposite directions. The driveway leading to the courtyard was placed in the centre of the land plot. The property contained many non-residential buildings – a servants building, carriage house, granary, and horse stables. In the 18th century Kaunas court elder Simonas Sirutis acquired the property and reconstructed the mansion. A new Classicism entrance was established instead of the driveway. During the research, among the finds that are usual for Kaunas Old Town, there were a few more rare finds that were notable for their artistic value.
