The private house is located in central part of Jurmala — Majori, 24 km from Riga. Territory of an ancient Vidzeme settlement, bought by von Fircks as a ”majorate“ in the 17th century. The ground remained property of the Fircks family till World War I. Owing to increasing interest towards Jurmala as a health resort, the land got divided into plots for building summerhouses. Building extended into the dunes as far as the beach. After the railway was opened in 1877, Majori developed into one of the most lively centres, with stores and places of entertainment. In the main street of Majori (now also of Jurmala) — Jomas street — Horn's concert garden was situated (the Rainis and Aspazija memorial stands in that place now). The buildings in Majori between Jura and Jomas street give a good idea about the stylistics of building in Jurmala, although a large number of interesting and characteristic houses are also in other streets as well (Lienes, Pilsonu, Victorijas, Konkordijas a. o.).
The house is located just 100 m. from the beach and near Jomas Str. is one of the central and oldest streets of Jūrmala and it has experienced many changes and transformations during its existence. Distribution of the first land plots and creation of the main street in Majori was started in the 1860s and 70s, prior to construction of a railway line. In 1850 it would be difficult to walk at the place where the current Jūras, Jomas un Lienes ielas are located – it was a muddy forest where farmers tended cattle. The development of streets in Jūrmalā, as the name of Jomas iela indicates, is related to inlets (“jomas” in Latvian). When the sea receded, sand dunes with parallel delves – inlets – were formed as a result of the wind. Once, Jomas iela began at the place where the current Lienes iela and Jomas iela cross, behind the Majori station square. Only after changes of names of the streets in 1936, when Rīgas iela was shortened, Jomas iela was extended to the Majori-Dubulti area boundary. The street’s name has remained unchanged until now, although in 1899 Jomas iela was renamed Puškina iela for a short period. Jomas iela has become a particular visiting card of the city, the main pedestrian street in Jūrmala, where one can look at others and show oneself. Already during the Soviet period, the processions of the popular resort’s festivities went along Jomas iela, and then along Turaidas iela and up to the beach.
