Paget Mansion

Campia Turzii, judetul Cluj

AddressParcului

Description

Around this beautiful building, with a roof that used to draw attention by the red tiles, the outhouses were situated: the carriage horse sstables, a smithery, the barn and the home of the estate manager. In the castle park it was a lake, continously supplied with water from a mound situated in the area.

In front of the mansion, where today we find the "Ionel Floasiu" House of Culture and "Ungureanu Villa", were situated the stables with riding horses, and on the place where now is the Post Office No. 1, there was a circus for riding. Here there were also several brick buildings, situated on the place of the current houses on 1st December 1918 Street, no.8 and no.10, which were the houses for the staff of Paget castle. Ilona Paget, the grand-daughter and the successor of Ion Paget, sold the mansion in 1913. After 1918 in the former Paget mansion worked, between 1918-1929, an agricultural state farm, along with the "Mihai Viteazul" boys orphanage (1920-1929), and between 1929-1958  Experimental Agricultural Resort.

Near the agricultural resort (on the former land of Ion Paget Mansion) was built a large storage for grain and seeds (1st December 1918 no.1-3; it was transformed into a block of flats, with commercial spaces at the ground floor). In a room of this former manor (also called " the White House" because of its external appearance) functioned between 1923-1949 an Orthodox chapel, before the foundation of the first Orthodox Church in the city. Prior to 1990 temporarily functioned here the "Children's Palace" ( The children's club after 1990").
