Where can I get information on the Kuusisto Castle and the restored Kuusisto Manor? Are there any photographs of the Manor? I would appreciate receiving any information you have available. Thank you.
I am interested in learning about my ancestors, and any historical information you may have.

The Kuusisto Castle and the Manor are situated on the Island of Kuusisto near the town of Kaarina, and they are not connected to the Kuusisto family (Kuusisto is a common surname in Western and Central Finland).
In the following Finnish pages there are photographs of the Kuusisto Manor (Kuusiston kartano):

Here is a photograph of the ruins of the Kuusisto Castle (Kuusiston linna):

And these pages contain some information in English about the Castle and the Manor:
