Terčí Dvůr Colony (Theresienhof)

There are a few scattered houses on the hill behind the village of Pohorská Ves towards Uhliště, forming a minor colony called Terčí Dvůr (Therese’s manor house) which was named after the Countess Therese Buquoy. Originally, the colony had 8 houses and 51 inhabitants. The glassworks and a few glass-makers´ houses used to stand nearby in the past. In the 18th century, there was a temporary chapel in the gamekeeper’s lodge where the masses were said as no church was built in Terčí Ves at that time. In 1791, the colony was cancelled as a management unit and the local buildings were divided along with the surrounding lands. The former farmyard was used and the lands were leased by the Count’s forestry staff. A part of the land was received by the foreigners who were called on to stay here. The rented lands were transferred in the real ownership in 1852 as a result of the abolition of serfdom.
