Description

Hugó Keviczky’s work from 1942 stood on Tessedik Square (today’s Main Square) until 1970. Its inauguration was broadcast live on Hungarian Radio. Sámuel Tessedik (1742-1820) lived in Szarvas from 1767 until his death. The polimath scholar was a church building priest and a master agronomist in one person. Tessedik homestead is Szarvas’s oldest listed building. It was built around 1760 in a baroqueish style and opened as Tessedik’s agricultural school in 1780. Around it is a 3,5 hectare demonstration farm. His shrine is in the Old Cemetery.
