While every house in Slovenia has a civic address, many houses also carry a household name. These names are how other people typically referred to that family. This house has the name of Koščakovi. At this time, the exact origin of this name is unknown to us.
This house is the second of five documented houses in church documents to be considered a “new” house in Vukovci. The best estimate for the construction of these series of houses is after 1870.
The Žagar family that originally inhabited this house is a family from the marriage between Jurij Žagar (Damelj 31) and Ana Maljevac (Mikičeva from Učakovci).
