The house of Bora Dimitrijević Piksle is a cultural monument in Leskovac, which was built in 1850 and today is called the Town Hall. This house once belonged to the Dimitrijević family, which consisted of the president of the first instance court Atanasije and his wife Dara, who was a teacher. The house was named after their son Bora Dimitrijević Piksla, who was an actor and theater manager in Leskovac, and was later killed by the Gestapo in World War II.
After several decades of abandonment, the house was restored in 1978 and turned into a museum, which represents a typical depiction of life in Leskovac from the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. Although there are no original objects used by the owners of the house in the museum, all exhibits date from that period and provide visitors with an insight into the lifestyle and culture of that time. The house was built in the Balkan style and is a typical example of a house from old Leskovac, and has significant historical and cultural significance for the city and Serbia.
