Heimtali ManorEdit

 
Heimtali manor house main building.

Heimtali estate (German: Heimthal) has a history that goes back to at least 1528, when it is mentioned in written sources for the first time. It was the property of different Baltic German local aristocratic families for most of its history. The current main building dates from 1855-1857 and was designed by the owner at the time, Peter Reinhold von Sievers. In its heyday during the 19th century, the manor house complex supported over 40 outbuildings and was surrounded by a park. Of the outbuildings, the peculiar former cheese dairy has been renovated. The von Sievers family burial ground is still located nearby.[2]
