Cottage with hiding place dates from 1901. It belonged to the family Marković from Željine. This object has been used for sleeping purposes. Its roof was made of straw and contained a skillfully built hiding place for grain. Cottages of this kind appeared at the beginning of the 19th century, when the Serbian state was in constitution. At that time, due to the instability over one`s property ownership and ravaging of local rebels, grain was considered the most valuable treasure and it was necessary to protect it.
