Ohtu Manor[edit]

Ohtu manor (German: Ocht) traces its origins to at least the 17th century. The manor received its current late baroque appearance, possibly the work of architect Johann Schultz, in 1769. The manor suffered from being neglected and eventually abandoned during the 20th century, but has been restored in 2002-2004. Some original details, such as the rococo carved wooden main door and a fine sculpted ashlar fireplace from 1654 (possibly the work of Joachim Winter of Haapsalu), are preserved in the house.[1][2]
