Laupa estate was established at the beginning of the 17th century. A wooden house was built at the site in 1853-55 by the Taube family but it was burnt down by insurgents during the revolt of 1905.

The current building was designed by Tallinn-based architect Jacques Rosenbaum in 1910 and completed in 1913. The style is an eclectic neo-Baroque architecture with strong Art Nouveau and neo-Rococo influences. The manor is considered to be one of Rosenbaum's most historically faithful buildings. The building is richly decorated with pilasters, half-columns, terraces, balustrades, stucco garlands and rococo sea shells. Some of the decorations were produced in the renowned workshop of sculptor August Volz in Riga. The manor is considered to be one of the most artistically accomplished manor houses in Estonia.

Today Laupa manor houses a school.

Laupa, Türi vald, Järvamaa, 58.761500, 25.372875 ‎58° 45' 41.40", 25° 22' 22.35" Мызу Лаупа основали в 1630 году. Изначально мыза принадлежала семейству фон Ферзенов. С 1849 года мыза находилась во владении фон Таубов. В 1905 году восставшими был подожжён господский дом, Отто фон Таубе пришлось строить новый масштабный представительный господский дом в стиле необарокко. В 1913 году дом был построен, арх. – Джак Розенбаум. Характерными для этого здания являются мансардные крыши, как спереди здания, так и в задней его части, расположены монументальные мансарды, а также гипсовый декор. Такое роскошное здание могло быть построено только при участии семьи Таубов. В 1899 году в Тюри была открыта бумажная фабрика (разрушена в 1941 году). Фабрика приносила хозяину большую прибыли. С 1919 по 1922 годы в национализированном господском доме действует школа. С 1999 по 2000 года господский дом ремонтировался. На мызе сохранились некоторые постройки второстепенной важности, а также большой парк, который расположен по обе стороны реки Пярну.

Externsteine Stones

The Externsteine (Extern stones) is a distinctive sandstone rock formation located in the Teutoburg Forest, near the town of Horn-Bad Meinberg. The formation is a tor consisting of several tall, narrow columns of rock which rise abruptly from the surrounding wooded hills. Archaeological excavations have yielded some Upper Paleolithic stone tools dating to about 10,700 BC from 9,600 BC.

In a popular tradition going back to an idea proposed to Hermann Hamelmann in 1564, the Externsteine are identified as a sacred site of the pagan Saxons, and the location of the Irminsul (sacral pillar-like object in German paganism) idol reportedly destroyed by Charlemagne; there is however no archaeological evidence that would confirm the site's use during the relevant period.

The stones were used as the site of a hermitage in the Middle Ages, and by at least the high medieval period were the site of a Christian chapel. The Externsteine relief is a medieval depiction of the Descent from the Cross. It remains controversial whether the site was already used for Christian worship in the 8th to early 10th centuries.

The Externsteine gained prominence when Völkisch and nationalistic scholars took an interest in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. This interest peaked under the Nazi regime, when the Externsteine became a focus of nazi propaganda. Today, they remain a popular tourist destination and also continue to attract Neo-Pagans and Neo-Nazis.
