Ferenc Deák lived in Kehida from 1808, when he was five years old. The mansion in Kehida was built by Gábor Hertelendy in the 1740s. The L-shaped, one-story building served its owners without major renovations for nearly two hundred years. The mansion gained its final form that can be seen today during the expansion performed in the 1920s. Ferenc Deák considered the mansion of Kehida his home for 46 years – from 1808 to 1854. Almost all the prominent personalities of the reform-era Hungary visited Kehida during these years. These days the Deák Ferenc Mansion, the former residence of the “The Wise Man of the Nation” is a museum and event house.
