  • Short history of the building

    The building is not listed on the country's list of monuments, the history of its construction is not known, although it is mentioned briefly in József Bíró's monography entitled "Transylvanian castles" (Budapest, 1943). The construction of the manor can be associated with the activities of Baron Dezső Bánffy (1843-1911), who settled in the village in 1865 and was the head of Solnoc-Dăbâca county between the years of 1876-1890. Since its nationalization, the manor hosted the Town Hall. In the year of 2014, the building was returned to its rightful owner, but the actual handover of the property hasn't happened yet. Currently, the manor still houses the Town Hall and the local Post Office.
