Uuemõisa estate (Neunenhof) is first mentioned in 1539 and then belonged to the Bishopric of Saare-Lääne. During the Swedish time it for a long period of time was a part of the vast domains of the De la Gardie family. The last owner before the Estonian land reform of 1919 was Eugenie Mikhailovna Shakhovskaya, the world's first female fighter pilot. After the Estonian declaration of independence, it was used by the Estonian Ministry of Defence. During the Soviet occupation of Estonia, the Red Army occupied the buildings. The current manor was built in mid 19th-century, with additions made in 1921-1923 by architect Karl Burman.

Seal on perekonnaseisu amet ja ma käisin oma naise surmatunnistuse järel.

Uuemõisa pargis ei ole enam võimalik käija jalutamas eakal inimesel kas üksi või ka lapselapsega. Nimelt vana planeeringuga olid pingid läbi aasta ja oli võimalik puhata jalga. Nüüd kas mine MÕISA bussipeatusesse või külmal Mõisahoone TREPIL. Seda sai ka tehtud. Mis toimub.. Eakad tahetakse juba varakult maha kanda. Tänan.

Frösö Runestone

Frösöstenen is the northern-most raised runestone in the world and Jämtland's only runestone. It originally stood at the tip of ferry terminal on the sound between the island of Frösön and Östersund. The stone dates to between 1030 and 1050. It has now been relocated to the lawn in front of the local county seat due to the construction of a new bridge, between 1969 and 1971, on the original site.

Frösö runestone inscription means: Austmaðr, Guðfastr's son, had this stone raised and this bridge built and Christianized Jämtland. Ásbjörn built the bridge. Trjónn and Steinn carved these runes.
