Heimskr's House is a small house in Whiterun owned by the priest Heimskr.
It is located beside the Gildergreen tree, between Jorrvaskr and the Temple of Kynareth. The house consists of two rooms. The first room contains a cooking pot and a chair beside a dull fire, and four chairs slightly to the side and facing a raised preaching area. There are four skulls and some food in the room.
The second room is the bedroom and contains Heimskr's bed, a chair by a table, a dresser, and a chest. On the table is a random high-level potion, and there's a Potent Lingering Poison on the dresser.
During the Battle for Whiterun rubble lands in front of the house, making it impossible to access the house for the rest of the game.
