Kiidjärve was the location of
Kiidjärve Manor, first mentioned in
the end of the 17th century. At first it belonged to the Zöge family
, but changed the owner very often thereinafter. The last baron E. von
Maydell built a red brick watermill on the
Ahja River in 1914. In 1922
the manor was dispossessed and gifted to Independence War veteran
Victor Mutt. The manor's classicist wooden main building was destroyed
during a fire in 1950. In 2003 a new culture house-library was built
on the site. The surrounding park was created on the second half of
the 18th century, and was taken under natural protection in 1972.
Ene Järvis (born 1947) was born in Kiidjärve.
