The history of Kehida is closely interwoven with the life of Ferenc Deák.

The “Wise man of the country”  lived here from 1808 to 1854 until he moved to Pest. An exhibition in the Deák Mansion with the title “The wise man of the country – the pride of Zala” shows his way of life.

The mansion was built by the Hertelendy family around 1740.

About 3 km from the complex is the Deák Fountain – a source in the Diós Valley. According to the legend, Deák drank during his stay in Kehida only from the the water of this fountain.
