It is assumed, however, that the first mentioning of Gvtenhage does not refer to Hrastovec castle as we now know it, but probably to a small settlement or a much smaller stronghold on the hill.

We can claim with certainty that this part of Slovenske gorice has always been populated by different people, among them Romans (about 2000 years ago). Evidence of Roman settlements in these parts are the Roman barrows and tumulus. Barrows, archaeological monuments, were in the past used for burial on these parts. We differentiate between pre-historical and Roman provincial barrows. The barrows in Slovenske gorice have an unusual characteristic - only one or two urn burials.

Prvotno katoliško župnijsko pokopališče je bilo okoli cerkve v Apačah. Cesar Jožef II je leta 1784 z ediktom prepovedal pokopališča v središčih vasi zato se je na mestu današnjega pokopališča določila nova lokacija. Obzidje starega pokopališča je bilo odstranjeno že leta 1832. V zgodnjih letih 20. stoletja evangeličanskih vernikov ni bilo dovoljeno pokopavati na katoliškem pokopališču, le ob njem ali v drugih krajih.

The house was planned for the bank of the Zala River as the water is indispensable for cooling the wrought iron.
