In accordance with J.C.Brotze (1.) this manor house has been built by the Riga chief commandant Hartwiss - it is considered that here is meant Anhorn de Hartwiss. Brotze mentions that this manor house is neglected and there is little remaining from its gaden. On the other side of the main road there was located school organised by freemasons - Hartwiss was active member of freemason craft. This craft was closed at the second half of 18th century. Freemasons at this time took a lot more visible, active role in the society.
