Veimarn as the dowry of his sister Amaliya Fyedorovna who married to the senator I.U. Peiker. Under the new owners a woode manor-house, stone outhouses, service buildings were built, a landscape park was laid out. In the 1840s Terpilitsi was bought by Ye.Ye. Vrangel. Under him the estate was enlarged and stone service constructions were built. They were made of boulders with brick supports, arches, window openings and doorways. The old park was added with oak, larch, maple, noble fir planting on the meadow and ash-tree planting on the roadside. In 1918 the estate was nationalized. At the present time old stone constructions are included into the modern industrial and economic complex, the rebuilt estate manor-house is used as the village Culture Centre.
