Geocache Description:

Cache is near a small village - Saulaine. It is not widely accessed by tourists, but it is hiding a very beautiful place - Kaucminde manor. You come to this manor by a small road and when cross a small bridge over a pond, it feels like you step back in history because it's really quiet here. Instantly decided, that this place needs to be on geocaching map. Placed a small lock&lock type geocache near the manor, to show this place to geocaching community.


[LV] Slēpnis ir maza, lock&lock tipa plastmasas kārbiņa, kas oriģināli satur viesu grāmatu un zīmuli. Slēpnis atrodas ārpus ēkas tāpēc iekšā nav jāiet. Izbaudiet skatu.

 Muiža kopā ar stalli un klēti būvēta ap 1780. gadu agrīnā klasicisma stilā, domājams, pēc arhitekta S. Jensena projekta. Laidars un kalpotāju ēkas uzbūvētas kompleksa vienā malā pie ceļa. Muižu ar apkārtējām ēkām vienotā pusloka apvienoja no 1909. līdz 1912. gadam pēc L. Reinīra projekta, uzbūvējot caurbrauktuves starp ēkām. 1923. gadā muižu un daļu muižas saimniecības nodeva jaundibinātai Kaucmindes mājturības skolai, kur galvenokārt saimnieku meitas mācījās rokdarbus, virtuves un galda kultūru, lopkopības, dārzkopības un pat zemkopības vadīšanu. Skola pastāvējusi līdz 1940. gadam. 1943. gadā muižas ēkā tika ierīkota vācu armijas lazarete. No 1945. gada pili izmantoja Saulaines lauksaimniecības tehnikums un tajā līdz pat 1970. gadam atradās kopmītnes. Šobrīd muiža neteik apsaimniekota un tai uzbrūk laika zobs, un ganjau arī vietējie pusaudži, kas bieži vien apgrozas muižas tuvumā, jo netālu ir skola. 

[ENG] Cache itself is a small, lock&lock plastic box, originally containing logbook and a pencil. Cache is outside of the buildig, so don't go in. Enjoy the view.

 Manor, together with stable and grannary is built about 1780., in classical style, presumably using architects S.Jensen's project. Manor, with it's surrounding buildings was connected in complex from 1909. till 1912. after L.Reinir's project, by building drive through roads with arches above them. In 1923. manor and part from it's building was made into Kaucminde houskeeping school, where daughtes of wealthy families could come here to learn handicrafts, kitchen works, table culture and even some agriculture knowledge. School existed until 1940. In 1943. manor was used as an infirmary for german army. In 1945. building was given to Saulaine Agricultural Technical School, and it was used as dorms until 1970. Today manor is unmanaged and time is destroying it, probably also the local teens, who tend to be at this spot, because the school is very close.
