|Keskus:||RMK Ojaäärse Nature House|
The Ojaäärse Nature House is situated in the northern Estonian recreation area of RMK, on the bank of Võsu River in the middle of a beautiful pine forest. The Ojaäärse Nature House was built in 1855. Karl Magnus von der Pahlen, the owner of Palmse Manor at the time, started building a new type of farm houses in local villages in 1844. The houses were built from limestone, usually with a stone roof, but the biggest innovation was the chimney which was not introduced to farm houses in the rest of Estonia until the 1880s. Ojaäärse was a full-sized farm, or a so-called six-day farm. In the Baltic provinces, i.e. in Estonia and Livonia, land was fully owned by the landlord. That led to the farmers’ obligations before the manor – resource rent paid in farm products and statute labour. The annual cycle of statute labour is also explained with the exposition in the house.
The nature house welcomes groups interested in nature and history who appreciate tranquillity and privacy.
Opening hours: The house is only open at previously reserved times.
