Description

"Duzani" home, which at present are uninhabited, but are not completely abandoned, probably is built in 1880.

Narrative

According to stories the split Vaineli sacrificial stone, of which there is few information, has been immured in the house foundations. Anyway - in the foundations, at the corners of the house, there are similar stone fragments - red rapakivi granite. The house walls are built from stone, of which there are many split or rubble stones. 1 m to the left from the entrance an immured stone with a drillhole is seen. Also this stone is large-grained red granite, but, probably, it differs from the blocks of stone immured in the corners of the house.
