Orbán Balázs wrote in 1860 that the building was a “vast and fortified castle, that today lies partially ruined and partially reconstructed”. In the 1870’s Máriaffy Albert commissioned a reconstruction and modification of the building, with a master mason from Marosvásárhely, Sóos Pál (1843-1910) overseeing the construction works.
After the building’s nationalisation in 1949, it functioned as a pigfarm and an agricultural collective; despite the way it was used, the building was still in good condition in 1989. After the collective was disolved, however, the locals stripped the place of everything moveable. The building was revendicated by the family, and the tenant uses it to agricultural produce.
