Sampeteris manor in 18th century was named after its owners - manor of Presting and manor of Landendorff. At the second half of 18th century manor house was obtained by Otto Hermann von Vietinghoff - named Scheel. Manor was named - Champêtre (from French - "rural"), and as time went by it was transformed to Sampeteris. In 1795 this manor was became property of Otto Heinrich von Igelström.

In 19th century in the area of Sampeteris manor there were developed manufactures - vinegar manufacture (1803), brewery (1856), litography (1899). In the turn of centuries up to 1930ies manor house belonged to von Derks family. During the Second World War here was located hospital of German soldiers. After the war it was used as dormitory for workers of nearby factories, mainly textile factory "Sarkanā tekstilniece". In 1990is the building was abandoned and demolished, dismantled in 1998.

Nowadays there has been preserved only part of the old manor park with small pond.
