Description

A stone hatchet and some ancient fishing tools found in the area of the manor show that people have been living here since the ancient times. According to the accounts of old people, Akmena manor used to stand on a small hill and in the first half of the 19th century the family of count Hoppen moved to a smaller manor house on the other side of a lime tree alley, closer to the stream. After 1864, there was built a Dutch style Akmena stone windmill that used to provide the whole neighbourhood with flour for years. In 1941, a prosperous manor was nationalised. When Lithuania regained its independence, the restoration works began. Akmena manor takes part in cultural and social projects, grows doves, ancient birds and flowers, and serves as a venue for open-air workshops and concerts.
