The household name Mikulaši likely originated ca. 1830 when the Ivičini household was split between two brothers, Ive and Mikula Jaketič. Ive remained at home, hence the Ivičini name, and Mikula built this house next door, starting the Mikulaši. The house was occupied until the early 1900s, when children married and left for North America, and their parents moved into the Tirolci household. This house, Zilje 39, was located between the Ivičini and Špeliči. Nothing remains of the house today.
