Vaimõisa manor was founded sometime in the middle of the 15th century, when it was feoffed by bishop to the Parenbeke-Farensbach family. After the Livonian war the estate was in the possession of the Fleming family for more than a century. After the Northern war Wetter-Rosenthal and Nasackin family, in the 19th century Wilcken and Knorring families owned the estate. The lords of Vaimõisa have always been dreamers, but also very efficient people- some tried to preserve independence of Old Livonia, some dreamed about teaching local children, and some of them about Estonia's national blue-black-white flag. One of the descendants of the manor, general H. Rautsmann was the teacher of the famous Finnish statesman C.G von Mannerheim in St. Petersburg. The main building of Vaimõisa was built in the turn of the 18-19th century in early-classicistic style, the triangle frontone has Nasackin's coat of arms on it. Close to the main building there are cavaliers’ house, granary and kiln, and stable with carriage-house. A grange and a windmill, situated nearby, are also part of the ensemble. Today the manor is private property and being renovated.
