Zemgale has used local resources - clay and dolomite - for centuries in this region. Already during the reign of Duke Jākobs construction materials were made here. The river Lielupe had great importance as it was used as a waterway to deliver the construction materials. In the second half of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th century, an industrial complex was established in the village of Ceplis - a lime kiln, a brick kiln, a tile factory, an oven tile factory and a glazing workshop, etc.

Currently, Igo Music Management Ltd. is working on a project to develop these buildings and is creating an art and music center “Ceplis”.

The historic Lime-kiln building is open for viewing. This unique industrial building with a massive chimney in the center can be observed in two floors, the chimney itself can be viewed from the inside. On the second floor, there is an exhibition room with historical bricks.
