Summary/Abstract: The author – based on a conscription from 1760, preserved in the archive of the Transsylvanian Museum Society – presents a destroyed mansion, the one built in Mezőpanit between 1670-1673, probably by Boldizsár Macskási, an influential politician of the Apafi-period. After his death the mansion remained in the possession of the Macskási family for a while, as the inscription preserved on the northern wall mentions the restaurations made by Krisztina Macskási and her husband István Bethlen around the year 1728. Soon after this it became the heritage of the Bethlen and Kornis families.
