The mansion was built on the border of the lake Mihăilești, at the beginning of the XXth century.

In the commune there were three churches and a mixed school with 61 students (among whom 11 were girls). At that time, on the current territory of the commune there also functioned in the same hundred the commune Novaci and Popești, each formed only by the village of residence. The commune Novaci had 683 inhabitants, a church and a school with 40 students (among whom 10 were girls). The commune Popești had 796 inhabitants, a church and a mixed school with 26 students.

Also, at the same time, the commune Novaci was dissolved, its villages passing onto the commune Mihăilești. The village Tufa – Costieni was also dissolved, agglomerated with Mihăilești.
