Wagun Manor House

In 1937 the estate consisted of 552 hectares (1364 acres) and boasted 107 inhabitants along with horses, cattle, pigs, and sheep.

In 1945 the house was occupied for several days by the Red Army. The last lessee was killed, but his family was able to flee. During East German times the house experienced many changes: first it served as housing for refugees, then as the community council building, a kindergarten, school, and finally apartments.

After German reunification it stood empty for several years. In 2000 the house and the rest of the property was bought by the current owner and over time was lovingly restored to its pre-1945 condition.  Today it is under monuments protection. A small artisan’s workshop for Asian weaving and the manufacture of horse bridles operates in the house.
