Vecmēmele Manor (Latvian: Vecmēmeles muiža) is a manor house in the historical region of Selonia, in Latvia.[1]

History

Built in the second quarter of the 19th century, the manor was later rebuilt in Italian Neo-Renaissance style with modern building decoration using arches, pilasters, cornices and decorative medallions. The interior decoration is dominated by simplified forms, such as wall and ceiling finishes, and paintings used in fake wooden structures.[2] It is currently privately owned.[2]
