Slovak County House - Dunaegyháza
The Building of the Country House
Address: 6323, Dunaegyháza Ady Endre u. 1.
Phone number: (78) 573-010
Opening hours: On prior notice
The building of the County House was built in the middle of the last century. The owners were the poor Petrik Family. The building is a typical example of the house of poor peasants. At that time the houses were made with mud wall, the roof was made of wood covered with cane, which was easy to find in the marshes around the village.

The setting of the house follows the room-kitchen-inner chamber pattern. A small yard belonged to the house where the shed and the sties were located. Today a shed stands next to the building where a hey-cart, a fire engine from the beginning of the century, a corn grain, a wood plough, and other equipments can be found. We displayed the old tombstones and wooden headboards taken from the old cemetery. These were placed on graves of Slovak families but the inscriptions were written in Hungarian.

The front- and back rooms open from the kitchen. An arch from the back of the kitchen over which the free chimney is situated separates this part. The bench and the furnace were also situated there. The furnace extended over to the front room. The other furnace that reached the chamber was already taken down. The tools are lined up on the bench. On the other bench opposite to it a milk jar, a wine jug, and equipments are placed. The furnace, into which a cooking-range was attached, was heated from the room. It could still be used nowadays. At wintertime when it was cold, the women cooked in the room and not under the free chimney.

The interesting part of the building is the rammed floor. It was easy to make, the material was taken from the dirt holes at the edge of the village. It was easy to clean as well. After sweeping it, sand was spread on it, and different patterns were made with the watering can.

Six people lived in the living room. Now a bed, a commode, a corner bench, a table, a crib, and figures wearing folk cloths are shown in this room. The bibles and the hymnbooks of the family were placed on the crossbeam. We tried to gather as many textiles as possible, but the collection is still not complete.

The inner chamber opened from the kitchen. The food and equipment were kept here. The meat and other smoked food were stored in the chamber beside the kitchen equipments that were not used every day. Now a chest with tulip ornament and equipments are lined along the wall. A pair of large cane cutter's boot is also in the chamber.
