More than 750 years ago Rakvere Castle was also named Wesenbergh.
During the tsarist period, the same street was called Peterburi and during first German occupation, it was named after Prince Heinrich. Since the beginning of Estonian independence, the street has a proud name of Tallinn. First wooden house at the current place of a brick building was built by Russian church priest Stepen Roždestvenski. By the end of 19th century there has been a bakery and pastry shop, spirit cellar and a shop in this building.
Later the building belonged to Mr. G. Kansbergh, who was the mayor of Rakvere for a brief time. In 1907 Mr. Kansberg built a two-story brick house – current Hotel Wesenbergh. Shops were on the ground floor and apartments on the second.
