The oak forest near Jibou is hiding a coquettish castle which was built in 1903 by The Béldys for their boy, grof Béldy Kálmán, when he married with Pálma, the daughter of grof Wesselényi Béla, on the field given to the Youngers by the latter one. The castle with 1100 square meters, provided with tennis court, racecourse and a beautifully arranged park, was the location in which the Youngers lived happily... until the nationalization when their dreams crumbled in a moment. Fortunately the castle was not left in decay, first it was transformed in a hospital then in a nursing home.

Today in building functions a neuropsychiatric hospital. Although a big part of the furniture disappeared, the building was kept in a good condition. It seems incredible how the library's furniture was kept, only the mirrors and the bottles of showcases are missing.

After the events in 1989, the heirs were regaining the possession of the castle and the field of 5 ha that is surrounding it.

For ensureing the further operation of the neuropsychiatric hospital and not to pay the monthly rent required by the heirs the County Council bought the castle thus becoming its landlord.
