The house (basement, ground floor, one storey and attic) was built in 1930 - 1931, on a plan drawn by the architect Coloman Halász. It’s a modernist style building, with a sloping tiled roof, having rectangular "skylights, and a bow window that sticks out from the south-western corner of the storey. The Memorial House is opened to public view in an apartment on the ground floor (3 show-rooms and 1 storage room - for documents). The offices and another storage room - for books, furniture and objects - are organized in the basement. "Ştefan Baciu" Memorial House is the first museum dedicated to a Romanian exile personality: Ştefan Baciu (Braşov, 1918 -... 1993, Honolulu - Hawaii) - poet, essayist and memoirs writer, journalist, art critic, translator, diplomat, and university professor. The Memorial shelters about 10,000 items: works of decorative and fine arts (Biedermeier furniture, porcelain, ivory, paintings), photos, 3,700 books (in Romanian, Latin, German, French, English, Spanish and Portuguese languages) and over 1,800 manuscripts and documents which belonged not only to the poet but to his entire family: Ioan Baciu (the poet’s father), Elisabeth Sager Baciu (mother) Ioana Baciu Mărgineanu (sister), Mira Simian Baciu (wife) and Ovidiu-Corneliu Mărgineanu (brother-in law - the founder of the museum).The focus of attention is on the bookcase, because there are on display approximately 1,900 books and magazines (mention should be made of some copies of Mele - "an international poetry letter", which contains original works in as many as 8 to 10 languages/issue), and on three of the six showcases (the first Romanian prints of the poet’s work, some editions in Spanish and Portuguese and some diplomas).
