At  first house was built in the Lowlands of V. Sruogienė father Casimir Daugirdas. However, the house was exploded in parts and for its recreation arrived into Kaunas by the railroad. Constructions of the house were completed in 1938 and Sruogos family moved here to live. House had a wooden single-storey cottage with a loft, porch and a balcony above it.
