The small two-storey modest building, a part of a complex of buildings of the present-day community of Odessa NELTCU has not seen tumultuous historical events for the years of its existence.
Originally the house was designed to accommodate a pastor room and various church services. In Soviet times, the building played a role of an ordinary residential house, and remained so until the early 2000s. In 2000-2002, in the Parsonage, restoration works with rearrangement for accommodation the administration of NELTSU were carried out.
In addition to administrative offices, there was a room equipped for events up to 190 seats. A main service for the decoration of the interior and memorial facade elements belongs to the artist T. Kammerer, who had participated in the reconstruction of the Church of St. Catherine in Kiev. The first experience in Odessa was a success and, subsequently, Kammerer completed interior decoration of Odessa Lutheran Church.
