Sala, a country estate (the village of Sala, the Kingisepp district). In the middle of the 18th century the village of Sala was the centre of the estate of Terpigorye that belonged to General F.-V. Bleken. In 1764 his daughter Sh.-M. Korf became the estate owner. Since the 1790s the estate was managed by I.O. Korf. Under him in Sala a wooden manor-house was built on the River Liga bank, a park was laid out, a pond was digged and stone service constructions were built. The family crypt with the chapel of the Prophet Elijah was built on the old cemetery. The crypt was the burial chamber of families of the Korfs and the Vrangels (it is intacted). In 1846 P.I. Korf became the owner of the estate. He added the second floor onto the manor-house. Two coaching inns and a distillery was built near the estate on P.I. Korf's resources. The last owner P.P. Korf emigrated in 1917. The estate foundation, pond and ruins of service constructions were intacted. The park was overgrown, old trees and parts of alleys were intacted.
