Abstract

The architecture of Courland manor houses is rich in classical monuments. Many of them form impressive building ensembles. The use of the buildings varies, historically – schools, parish boards, farm administrations, nowadays – guesthouses, private properties and still schools. One such site is in Laidi, where the existence of a school is problematic.
