Manor of President Antanas Smetona

Manors, religious objects

The history of this manor started in 1934, while celebrating the 60th anniversary of the President of Lithuania Antanas Smetona, it was decided to build the manor in his birthplace, on the bank of the lake Lėnas. A. Smetona named his manor “The Yard of Užugiris” and desired to set up a model farm, which would become an agriculture school. Unfortunately, A. Smetona spent only few summers in “The Yard of Užugiris” as in 1940 the manor was nationalised.
