This house could have been built around 1932-1937, when the young, newly married family of Benjamin Gudaitis and Magdelena Štrimaitytė-Gudaitienė moved here from Agurkiškė. Benjamin worked as a forester in Kazlų Rūda. Magdelena was disabled from childhood, thus, was a housewife. The family never had children of their own. Therefore, throughout their lives, they were very attentive to and took care of the children of their brothers and sisters, constantly helping them.
Magdelė’s husband died around 1996 at a very respectable age. Left alone, Magdelė handled herself well, her “Crabs Pharmacy” continued to work because Magdelė’s generosity always attracted a lot of helpers. Some would find and carefully dig up the roots of silverwort. Others cleaned and prepared them. Then either Magdelė herself or her helpers used to finely chop the roots. It was painstaking manual work as the roots were extremely hard. After that, the cut chips were dried and packed in bags. It is said that there was always a specific sweet smell in Magdelė’s house.
The house is currently owned by other owners.
