Mr. and Mrs. Márton from Kömpöc acquired the building a few years ago. As passionate heritage preservers, they did see the potential in it. The house is located in the heart of the small village, right next to the municipal government’s building. It is an excellent venue for community events, but it also offers the possibility to view the collection and learn about traditions. The collection is continuously expanding not only thanks to the couple, but to local residents and kind-hearted people with ties to Kömpöc.
Originally, the building opened to the street and the front porch was rented. For a while, Dezső Máté shoemaker, then a barber worked here. The outbuilding was annexed to the house before the Second World War. During the war, Laci Kovács shoed everyone’s horse here. One window with a street view used to be the door where people queued with their horses. The original leather bellows that Uncle Laci used to work with is also on display.
