Kálnoky is one of the historical families in Transylvania their roots going back to medieval times. It is believed that in the 13th century a saxon by the name Kálnoky had saved the life of the King of Hungary during a hunt, aiming with his arrow the bear that had attacked the king. The monarch would have offered him, as a reward, the domain at Miclosoar and a nobiliary title. In memory of the event the family’s coat of arms preserves the image of the bear struck by an arrow.
The construction today stands where there was once a Renaissance style mansion and has undergone major changes in time. A historical element that was preserved from its beginning is the ancient chapel portico of carved stone dating back 1685 and which was used in1884 as a door for the family crypt in the cemetery of the present day Roman-Catholic church.
