In the 19th century the manor was the property of the dynasty of Baron von Hahn. The manor house was built during the time period of 1845-1860. The initial design of the building was planned by E.J.A.Strauss, the architect of Courland Province and rebuilt and extended from 1859-1860.

The manor is surrounded by 20 ha of park with ancient avenues and includes a house for servants, a laundry house, a chapel, a pond, the cemetery of the Hahn dynasty and more. Various legends surround the place which you can discover during your visit at the manor. Currently the manor houses a school.

The laundry house Vešūzis

In 2018, an authentic laundry house of the 18th/19th century was renovated, now offering a learning program of ancient laundry washing traditions. The building consists of three floors, of which each has been developed to represent its historical functions: on the first floor, everyone can learn how the ancient laundry washing and ironing process took place; the second floor houses the laundry drying room, and the third floor is home to the laundress' room.  The laundry house is an original and authentic part of the complex of Lielplatone Manor. It is possible to participate in demonstrations of ancient laundry washing processes under the guidance of a laundress.
