    Jost Sigristen House, Ernen
    Martin Jost, Meier (government governor) and banner lord of the Zenden Goms, built the house on the Unteren Hen gert in 1581. The square timber block stands on a base with a basement and hall level. In 1701, the client expanded the house on the eastern side of the eaves with a walled extension. In 1772 - during the Rococo period - the interior of the house was renovated. Most of the furnishings with paneled rooms and coffered ceilings have been preserved. At that time the client was Jakob Valentin Sigristen, the last governor of the old Republic of Valais before the French invaded. Since 1995, the first floor of the house has been home to a museum dedicated to the home decor and everyday life of Governor Jakob Va lentin Sigristen († 1808). The museum was set up by the foundation and the local museum and cultural preservation association in Ernen with the support of the municipality of Ernen.
