Von den de Rosenroll
Popularly known as Schlössli, the building was built in 1670 as the seat of the Rosenroll family.


His builder Sylvester Rosenroll (1646-1721) was a made man, not only because of his wife, a born von Salis. He himself came from a family that had worked its way up through much commercial skill to the determining force in Thusis.

The rose rolls only appeared in Thusis at the beginning of the 16th century, their origin is in the dark. Their first ancestral seat was the Krone House on the village square, where the notorious Thusner Criminal Court met in 1618. The Rosenroll family later even came into possession of Baldenstein Castle in Sils – and suddenly became a title of nobility. The last Thusner descendant died in 1794, other members had already emigrated at this time.

Several Rosenroll led the family tradition and proved themselves as officers in foreign service. Born near Naples, Anthony Siegwart Rosenroll (1847-1945) dared to make his fortune in North America – and became a successful politician and businessman there.
