Anton's parents, originally from southern Estonia bought the North Tammsaare farm in the mid to late 1800s. Peeter and Ann Hansen worked hard on their property and raised their twelve children here. Anton was the fourth child, born in 1878.
Much of Anton's impressions, experiences and recollections expressed in his writing were gained from his childhood home in Tammsaare. He based several of his characters on people he knew, including his mother.
Visiting this museum will not only make you feel closer to the writer but experience the world he created in Truth & Justice first hand.
