The manor house in the style of a baroque castle was built in 1776 by Johann Georg Siegert. After his death in 1783, his daughter Rahel Amalie Welck inherited the manor "Rittergut Oberrabenstein".

After several changes of ownership, the factory owner Matthee Paul Herfurth acquired the manor in 1903. He rebuilt the manor and had the conservatory built at the same time. Matthee Herfurth lived in Rabenstein Castle until his expulsion in May 1945.
