It was one of the first estates around Lake Karhe and has been established in 1598'
Jussila & al 2009: Location might be a bit off but rather propable. Field and forest.
There are no signs of old building. If it has been located on the hill in north,
there are remains of a building and yard. House stands alone and is propably mainly decomposed.
Not an anchient relic."
