The manor house is situated at the south-western part of the city, in the neighbourhood previously called Szemerja. It is the city’s only Baroque-stlyle manor house which is still intact and more or less preserved in its original form. It has a rectangular ground plan, it is perpendicular to the main street, and it is similar in style to the houses in the Țara Bârsei region of Transylvania.
There is a memorial plaque at the forefront of the building, which reveals that Zathureczky Emília, the wife of Cserey János, used to live here. She was a great collector. In 1875 she founded a museum, and her collection became its central part. She dedicated her collection and her museum to the Szeklers in 1879, and her collection was the basic of today’s National Szekler Museum.
