Building with two corner towers on a postcard from 1906 appears as the City Haller. No wonder, the 1m thick walls could once have a defense role. It is not known who built it, but it is said to have been built in the place and the ruins of a monastery attested in 1311. The stairway itself was probably a chapel, the medieval believers were Catholic. In some documents of 1812 show that Bethlen Kata Barbara's daughter inherited the building and the neighboring school is his son Paul. So it is understandable why the two girls of Barbara, Anna and Jozef had their house until 1815.

Probably for a while again is not inhabited. Revived in 1838, when Haller Anna married Kálnoky György. They only stay between 1838-1840 at Hoghiz, and probably renovated the building. That would explain why Hoghiz residents know the building under the name of Kalnoky Castle. György dies in 1844, and his brothers become owners. After their death in 1892 Haller János bought the estate at auction, which was inherited from his children. The building was not nationalized because it was sold in 1923. And it is now privately owned.
