* The Catholic Church's construction of Meseșenii de jos locality started in 1498. The catholic bishop Geréb László, the one who owned land in Meseșenii de Jos was the church's founder. In 1567 the locality's Christians passed to reformed religion together with the church. The catholic remains, like the vestry's gothic door, tabernaculum, the vestry's arch with veins are visible even after the church's transformation. The sanctuary has two entrances.

From exterior the structure is strengthen with eight buttresses and among which the gothic lacy stoned windows on the superior side can be seen. Up until 1920 the ceiling was cassetted but after its fall was whitewashed. The pulpit built in brick is painted in oil.

The balcony's front side is decorated with floral motifs. On the balcony's front side two memorial plates in memory of dead ones in world wars were mounted. On a belfry tower's girder covered with shingle year 1775 can be read.

The top side of belfry tower was many times modified fact that explains that the 4 little towers were made later. The bells were made in 1766, respectively in 1792. The church is on the list of historical monuments from Sălaj.
