The Adler Apotheke on Altmarkt is first mentioned in the city archives in 1683.Today's house was built around 1828 by the pharmacist Heinrich Ludwig in place of a house that was destroyed in the town fire in 1827. In 1904 the pharmacist Dicke bought the house
and handed it over to his son in 1949, the Dicke family still owning the house for over 300 years in Schwelm. On March 3, 1945, the house was badly damaged by bombs. Except for the ornate gable, it was rebuilt in its old beauty.Source: heimatkunde-schwelm.de/14Heimatfest/HF-Uebersicht-small/pdf/Heimatkunde%20Beitraege%201936-2017%20wz.pdf (page 178)
