In 1830 brothers Konstantin and Eduard von Ungern-Sternberg brought the woollen textile factory from Suuremoisa over to Kardla. The factory that definitively influenced the development of Kardla and the whole of Hiiumaa grew very fast. In 1830 there were 210 employees, in 1880 already 770. With its 2000 citizens Kardla became a considerable centre of its time. In October 1941 the factory was destroyed but the houses of workers and the house of the baron (Long House) have survived. In 1982 a monument for the Kardla woollen textile factory was erected; the figure, placed on a granite base and cut hollow, symbolizes a loom.
