The first written record of Raikküla manor date back to the year 1469. Later it has been associated with the von Staals, the Kankrins and the von Keyserlings. The luxurious High-Classicist main building was completed on the foundation of a former building in 1820. After a fire in 1960, the house lied in ruins for a long time. Currently, it is privately owned and being renovated. About a kilometre from the manor's centre is a family graveyard of the von Keyserling's family.

Eestimaa nn täiskasvanute mõis, võimsa energeetikaga kompleks, ürgsete elupuudega ring, paljastatud paekivi mustriga uhkete sammaste ning rõngas_võlvidega paraad_trepiga peahoone koos samas väärtuses ja kaaluga abihoonetega. Vaieldamatu pärl Eestimaa süames!

A secluded manor that has a nice park and terrace to do a piquenique when the weather is nice. The manor itself is in bad condition and not accessible for internal inspection.

Lincoln Memorial

The Lincoln Memorial is an American national monument built to honor the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. It is located on the western end of the National Mall in Washington, D.C., across from the Washington Monument. The architect was Henry Bacon and the designer of the primary statue was Daniel Chester French.

Dedicated in 1922, it is one of several monuments built to honor an American president. It has always been a major tourist attraction and since the 1930s has been a symbolic center focused on race relations.

The building is in the form of a Greek Doric temple and contains a large seated sculpture of Abraham Lincoln and inscriptions of two well-known speeches by Lincoln, 'The Gettysburg Address' and his 'Second Inaugural Address'. The memorial has been the site of many famous speeches, including Martin Luther King's 'I Have a Dream' speech, delivered on August 28, 1963, during the rally at the end of the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom.

Since 2010, approximately 6 million people visit the memorial annually.
