It is a large two-story building located on Hisarkapı Uluyolu. The street side of the building, which has bulges in three directions, is more spectacular than the others. The first restoration of the building was made in 1978 and it became available at Atatürk and Ethnography Museum. The second restoration of the building, which was originally built with traditional materials, was made in 1998 and again became available as a museum. Ever since its restoration, the building has been used as a museum.

The walls on the other floors of the building, which was rubble stone wall until the basement, were built with the wooden framed carcass. The exterior of the walls, which were originally covered with timberwork on half-timber, was plastered with mud and haired mortar. The inner surface of the building was smoothed with mud, plastered with plaster, and whitewashed with lime. However, after the restoration, the building was restored in accordance with today's technology by using exterior paste and silicone-based paint; thus, the building gained a modern appearance. When the visitors first enter the main entrance of the building, they encounter the sofa called “Hayat” and there are rooms around this sofa. The sofa on the upper floor is reached by a staircase and the rooms around it open to this sofa. The high number of windows on the upper floor of the building, which belongs to the planning scheme with an inner sofa, provides a bright and spacious environment for the building. Although it is not known exactly by whom and when the building was built, it is known that Bursa Governor Ahmet Vefik Pasha was a guest in this house in 1879.  Atatürk, who came to Uşak during the War of Independence, was hosted in this house on September 2, 1922. In the light of this information, it is understood that the building was built in the second half of the 19th century and before 1879.
