Echon kartano manor is located near the centre of Hartola by the river Tainionvirta. The East Häme Adult Education Institute is located in the courtyard of the former Eko (Echo) Manor.
Eko Manor was separated from Koskipää Manor in the late 18th century, when Adolf Tandefelt built the main building of the manor. The Adult Education Institute began to work in the manor in 1913. The main building burned down in 1923 and in the same year a new building by the architect Kaarlo Borg was completed. The log-built Mäkitupa and Veistola buildings, fomer wings of the old manor, date from the 18th century.
At the beginning of the birch lane leading to the Institute is a memorial to the old church of Hartola, which was built in the 17th century.
The Linna Hotel operates at the Institute.
