The Amtshaus found by Theodor Fontane on his visit to Fahrland in 1869 no longer exists. Today a kindergarten stands on its foundations. However, Vorland Castle was located here from the 12th century onwards, and this is where the name “Fahrland” comes from. Since the early 15th century, the long-established noble family of Stechow resided here, owners of numerous villages in Mark Brandenburg. In 1693, the family sold their Fahrland property for 50,000 Reichstaler to Elector Frederick III (1657-1713), the later King Frederick I. He had the old castle demolished and a functional two-storey building called “Lusthaus” constructed, which also served as an official residence.
In the course of the Prussian district reform of 1872, the Royal Prussian Domain Office Fahrland was dissolved and the official administration moved to Potsdam. From then on, the building served as a residential house for the tenant farmer. The structural condition of the residential building deteriorated, so it was demolished in 1929 and replaced with today’s solid two-storey building, where the domain tenant's family continued to live. Residential use ended in the 1930s when the domain estate was dissolved due to the construction of barracks at Krampnitzsee. After 1945, the building accommodated refugees, while from the early 1950s onwards there was a primary school on the upper floor and a kindergarten on the ground floor. The kindergarten is still located in the building, which was extensively renovated in 1998/99.
