The manor passed from the von Hausen family to the City of Lahti in 1959. The main building dates from 18th century, but it was altered during the following centuries. Surviving courtyard buildings include two wings, an overseer’s house, a gate tower and a sauna on the lake. The manor park was laid out in the late 19th century.
