In the second half of the 19th century, the castle and the estate were bought by Várady Szabó Lajos, a merchant from Debrecen, who had fallen in love with the castle and its surrounding landscape many years before. (We can read about this in the family-novel, written by Szentmihályné Szabó Mária: Work belongs to man, blessing belongs to God.)
Vízaknai Miklós’s castle was first mentioned in the village in 1467. In 1598, it became subject to the rule of Mihai Viteazu, voivode of Wallachia. Afterwards it belonged to the Gálfi family, and in 1629 it was granted by Bethlen Gábor to Toldi György, whose family maintained ownership of the castle until the middle of the 19th century.
The two-story castle lies in a dense park and appears to have been built in two stages: the building block with square ground plan and trifacial main entrance seems to have been built in 1879, and at the turn of the century the Csernovics family has added a part which resulted the elongated form of the castle. It is presumed that the castle has received its decorations in this second phase, highlighting the windows and corners of the building.
