The classicist manor house was built in Snina in 1781 in place of the previous wooden building by the countess Terézia van Dernáthová, grand-daughter of the last male descendant of the Drugeth family, which ruled Snina probably since 1321. Sons of the countess sold Snina in 1799 together with still not completely finished manor house to the Rholl family, trading in mining and metallurgy industry, which discovered iron ore in Vihorlat hills.

The two-storey building of the manor house with rectangular plan and projections on the facade was a beautiful noblemen seat with many rooms - bedrooms, dining rooms, rooms for guests, count’s salons, hall, kitchen, cellars. This object had huge basements and there was such a spacious corridor leading under it that a horse carriage could pass through it.
