This place is a huge part of local Latvian history.

The Lindens 2 house (1870)
The servants lived in this house, but in the time of the “Linden-2” collective farm it was used as a living house for the farm laborers.

It was built from limestone plates and it has a gable roof. It is assumed that the house is a rebuilt household building. There were other servants houses in the territory of the manor.

2.
Reception - Warden’s house (1840)
The warden who employed the peasants for work at the manor lived in this house. Every day the peasants gathered outside his house and waited for him to assign them work.

There was a stone yard near the warden's house, which has unfortunately not survived.

3.
Manor house (1672)
This is the oldest building of the manor that remains to this day. There was a school inside it from 1919 to 1970. It seems that during the 1920s the building was reconstructed for the needs of the school by non-professionals.

The foundation of the building is made of boulders cemented together with mortar. Actually the building was made of horizontally arranged beams. Boards were used to cover the walls, which were weatherized with sawdust. Initially the roof was tiled but later the tiles were replaced with tin.


Over the front door there is a construction also held by columns that used to have semicircular windows. They were replaced by rectangular windows in the 1950s. The height of the building is one and a half floors, with an attic upstairs.

There were several “stoves” in the building decorated with different kinds of tiles: dark brown, brown, green-brown, black-brown, green-black with red-brown pots painted on them, and fireplaces covered with moss-green tiles.

At present many of these fireplaces have been destroyed. A spiral staircase led to the second floor, but now it is so ruined it is not possible to get upstairs.
