Although the feudal system ended with the French Revolution, the Castle of Miserey was still owned by the Sémerville family after the revolution. By marriage, the castle fell to the Count of Maupeou and remained in the family until the beginning of the 20th century. Then it was sold three times in quick succession and the interior was lost. In 1947 Robert Gouin de Roumilly bought the castle and had it restored. It is still owned by the family today. The main building dates from the end of the 17th century and was rebuilt in the second half of the 18th century.
