Description

Lielvircava Manor's (Groβ-Würzau) old manor house was built in the period from 1803 to 1808, and was constructed by Baron Dionysius von Kloppmann. In 1822, the manor was purchased by Dietrich von Grothuss, who presented it, in 1829, to his daughter Adelaide, who married Baron Wilhelm von Hahn. In this way, the von Hahn family gained ownership of the manor with various members of the family living there right up until the Agrarian Reform. In the mid-19th century, the manor house was rebuilt with features of the classicist style, using a variety of interior details from the old manor house. One can find out about the manor's history and the history of 19th century fashion at the exhibition hall and the exposition space which has been created in the manor house.
