This manor house from 17th century has not been preserved.
Properties of this manor were located in both sides of Riga - Moscow tract which was going through the inner yard of manor. Closer to Riga there was Krusta tavern, in the manor centre there were also numerous houosehold buildings, forge, and - manor house. In 17th century here has been shown cemetery. It is possible that the name of manor comes from cemetery - Krusts in Latvian is - cross. Another explanation - manor is at the junction - next to it in Daugava there was crossing and road was going towards it.
In later times in the centre of manor there was established school, barracks.
