Tww Comment

The manor was destroyed in WW2. The manor was considered perhaps most elegant of the donation manors built during the Russian period .It was also notorious for its “whipping pines” where corporal punishment of serfs was meted out. It was perhaps not a coincidence that the monument celebrating the abolition of serfdom was raised here in Pyhäjärvi. (http://kareliadiaries.blogspot.com/2012/01/vanishing-manors.html)
