Raguvėlė manor

In the 17th century, Raguvėlė Manor was owned by Sokolovskis family. In around 1698-1701, the manor went to Ukmergė district swordsman Mikalojus Komaras-Zabožinskis. In 1744, the manor was inherited by his son Antanas Komaras. During the period of Juozapas Komaras, the former colonel of the Lithuanian Armed Forces in the army of Napoleon Bonaparte, the manor expanded considerably. At the end of the 18th century and in the first half of the 19th century, the main buildings of the manor ensemble, as well as the wooden church of Raguvėlė were built at the initiative of Komaras. The ground floor of the two-story palace had a large dining room, guest and servant rooms, and a winter garden across the right side of the façade. On the first floor there were the living quarters of the landlords.  

In 1822, Russian Tsar Alexander I with his retinue stayed at Raguvėlė Manor.

The manor was later further inherited by the family members: Konstantinas, son of Juozapas Komaras, his son Mykolas Komaras. From 1907 onwards, the school of Raguvėlė Manor, opened by Konstantinas Komaras, is mentioned.

In 1940-1944, the central manor house, nationalised at that time, housed an agricultural school and later educational institutions: an agricultural technical school and a bee-keeping-horticultural school.
