Imastu Manor[edit]

Imastu knight mnaor (German: Mönnikorb) was first mentioned in written records in 1447. The present-day building was built in the 1880s by master builder Friedrich Modi from Rakvere. It is an eclectic, irregular building with neo-Romanesque details. Ornamental painted ceilings and tiled stoves have been preserved.[1]
