Vēsture

Vietas nosaukums „Jaunmokas” dokumentos pirmo reizi minēts jau tālajā 1544. gadā.

Jaunmoku pilij, kurā neogotiskā stila formas apvienojušās ar jūgendstila elementiem, ir īpaša vieta starp Latvijas arhitektūras šedevriem. Pils uzcelta 1901. gadā pēc arhitekta Vilhelma Bokslafa (1858-1945) projekta – kā Rīgas pilsētas mēra Džordža Armitsteda (1847-1912) medību pils.

Džordžs Armitsteds Jaunmoku pilī saimniekoja līdz 1904. gadam. Pēc tēva nāves viņš savā pārziņā pārņēma Rindzeles muižu, tāpēc Jaunmoku pils tika pārdota Brinkenu dzimtai.

No 1910. līdz 1918. gadam pils piederēja fon Ungernu-Šternbergu dzimtai, 1918. gadā muižu savā īpašumā ieguva vācu izcelsmes lauksaimnieka Vilhelma Freimaņa ģimene. Tad pēdējo augstāko vilni gadsimta griežos uzmeta aristokrātijas vasaras izbraukumu un atpūtas dzīve.

1920. gadā pēc Agrārās reformas Jaunmoku muiža (1394 ha) tika sadalīta. Pils nonāca valsts īpašumā, bet saimniecības ēkas un zemi izrentēja. Pilī ierīkoja Rīgas pašvaldības Slimokases bērnu atpūtas nams “Cīrulīši”.

Otrā Pasaules kara laikā pili izmantoja gan krievu, gan vācu armija. Kara sākumā pilī bija ierīkota krievu seržantu skola, tad vācu raidstacija, bet kara beigu posmā – vācu kara hospitālis.

Pēckara gados pilī sākas kantoru, tautas namu, veikalu un dzīvokļu laiks. Neviens no apsaimniekotājiem neveica remontdarbus… 1974. gadā, daļēji jau sabrukusī pils, nonāca LR Mežsaimniecības un mežrūpniecības ministrijas pārziņā. Sākās pils atjaunošana, kas ilga vairāk nekā 20 gadus.

No 1992. gada pils apsaimniekotājs bija Valsts medību saimniecība, bet no 2000. gada – valsts akciju sabiedrība “Latvijas valsts meži”.

Arī tagad turpinās pils labiekārtošanas darbi. To mērķis – panākt, lai Jaunmoku pils kļūtu par vienu no būtiskākajiem Latvijas valsts tūrisma un kultūras centriem ar plašām attīstības perspektīvām.

History

Palace Jaunmokas is a masterpiece of architecture in Latvia, designed with a combination of Neo-Gothic and the forms of Art Nouveau. The palace was built in 1901 according to the project of the architect Wilhelm Bokslaf (1858-1945) as a hunting palace for the mayor of Riga – George Armitstead (1847 - 1912).

George Armitstead owned the palace Jaunmokas until 1904. After the death of his father, George took over the manor of Rindzele and sold palace Jaunmokas to the family Brinkens who owned the palace from 1904 – 1910. After that, the owners of the palace changed very often.

From 1910 – 1918 the palace belonged to the fon Ungern – Sternberg family;

1918 – 1920 – Wilhelm Freymann;

1920 – 2nd World War – the owner was the state of Latvia. The palace was used as a sanatorium for children.

The 2nd World War - Russian and German armies used the palace as a sergeant’s school, broadcasting station and a war hospital.

After the Second World War the palace was used as a Machine Tractor base, Melioration (soil improvement and drainage) and Agricultural Technique office. Approximately 20 families lived in the palace; there was also a shop, a cinema and ballrooms in the palace.

Unfortunately not one of the owners cared about the palace and no repair work was done, therefore in 1974 the building was partly destroyed and the Ministry of Forestry took over palace Jaunmokas. Renovation works started and lasted for more than 20 years.

Today the owner of the palace is the joint stock company “Latvijas valsts meži” and the work to make palace Jaunmokas a place worth visiting still continues.
