With the arrival of the Discalced Carmelites Order in the early 18th century, the aristocratic residence turned into a monastery for some time; eventually the monastery was closed down under a decree issued by Emperor Joseph II. The last owners of the domain was the family of attorney Adolf Weiss from Prague, who had the east wing torn down in 1884.

This intervention disrupted the original four-winged layout. After WWII, the chateau was taken by the army, which remained there until 1992. A general renovation that took place in the first decade of the 21st century turned the chateau into a centre of regional cultural and social life. Besides the Municipal Authority, a library and an information centre, the chateau also houses a museum that presents local history and works by famous Pacov natives, poet Antonín Sova and painter Jan Autengruber.
