Hermann manor was located in Pardaugava next to the road to Jelgava, some 2,8 km from Riga centre. It was on the junction of Jelgava road and the new (then) Bauska road.

Manor house at the end of 18th century was established by merchant Hench. In 1797 manor house was purchased from him by officer and the elder of Great Guild Gothard Hermann von Ramm (since 1801 also Riga town councillor) and it served as pleasure site and summer house in Pardaugava. To the brother of Gotthard Hermann - Joachim, renowned doctor - belonged Aderhold manor in Brasa next to Military hospital.

J.C.Brotze has pictured this building in 1792, showing one floor wooden building with steep tiled roof where the gable and pediment have been built with fachwerk.
