Ischl became a market town in 1466, with its own court of law. The limits of the market court’s jurisdiction were marked with stones. In 1719, the limits were newly marked, with new limit stones being erected as precisely as was known. The last of these stones, in its place, is here a Frauengasse. Another stone is in the Museum of the Township of Bad Ischl.

The more or less neatly placed stones bear the letters M I (Markt Ischl, or “Market of Ischl”) and the year 1719 on one side, and on the other side, L W  (“Landgericht Wildenstein”, or “Wildenstein District Court”) and again the year 1719.
