The part named Bukher in the village of Szűcs began to develop in the 19th century. The Bajza Cottage built in the 18th century in Classicist style is in the East side of the yard.

József Bajza, significant publicist of the Reformation Age, was born in the house on 31, January 1804. He was involved in the institution of literary criticism. His father was the overseer of the Földváry family.

The house in which Bajza was born is a one story little house in the yard. It consists of rooms with ceilings made of beams opening from each other. A porch was attached to the house. The whole building was constructed of freestone. Originally, six windows with shutters were built in the wall on the side facing the street. In the wall on the east side there are still two original windows, both of them are slightly arched.

The original entrance was located on the west side. The old granary was at the right angles to the house. Underneath there is a cellar.

As time passed, the Bajza house became dilapidated. Only the memorial plaque of Bajza inaugurated on 23, August 1896 betrayed a connection to the family. Eventually, the Mayor's Office decided to renovate the building so unjustly forgotten.

The construction works lasted six years. The builders tried to put the house in its original state. They opened a door on the side facing the street. Over it, the coat of arms of the Bajza family is situated. We enter the Bajza memorial room through this door. East of the memorial room a tourist lodging for eight persons was developed.

The visitors may learn of the life of Bajza by the help of the installations in the showcases and on the walls located in the memorial room. The damaged original memorial plaque is located in the hallway as well as the stone with the print of the key of the Bajza Cottage. In addition, our permanent exhibition presents a few original copies and manuscripts of Bajza's books.

We were greatly helped in our research work by Mrs. Koczka Júlia Király, museologist of the István Dobó Castle Museum of Eger as well as the descendants of Bajza: József Bajza and Dr. Kálmán Bajza. Significant part of the exhibition is acquired from the Petőfi Literary Museum.
