בית הקונסוליה האמריקאית
הבניין נבנה בשנת 1868 ע"י הקהילה הסורית-אורתודוקסית, והושכר בשנת 1895 לקונסוליה האמריקאית, שהצטרפה לרחוב שזכה לכינוי רחוב הקונסוליות. הקונסוליה עשתה שינויים במבנה בן שתי הקומות, הסירה את גג הרעפים והפכה את קומת המסד לחנויות. מאוחר יותר נוספה קומה שלישית. בשנת 1912 עברה הקונסוליה למשכנה ברחוב אגרון. בין גלגולי הבניין פעלו בו בשנות השלושים המרפאות של הרופאים מרכוס זלצברגר ויוסף טרוי, ברחוב שנודע גם כרחוב בתי החולים.

The Syrian-Orthodox community built this house in 1868 and leased it in 1895 to the US Consulate, that moved to what was known at the time the street of the consulates. Changes they made included the removal of the tile-roof and opening the ground floor for shops. Among the uses of the building after the move of the consulate to Agron Street, were the clinics of the physicians Marcus Satzberger and Jossef Troy, in the street that was known also for its numerous hospitals.
