Kuusnõmme Manor (German Kusnõm), a private manor, was built in 1568. The manor changed owners often because of poor fields and low yield. The construction time of the last main building is thought to be the beginning of the second half of the 19th century and, in 1922, a biology station belonging to the University of Tartu started work in the manor under the management of Professor Johannes Piiper. The main building was destroyed in a fire in August 1984.
