  • Finland’s Library Museum

    Kirjastonkatu 13, Vaasa

    Suomen Kirjastomuseo

    Finland’s first library was established in Vaasa already in 1794. The Library Museum provides a versatile picture of the history of the library with the help of artefacts, books and pictures. Historical book collections share the space with the museum’s alternating exhibitions.

    The roots of Finland’s first library are in the Waasa Reading Library (Waasan Lukukirjasto), which was established by some members of the Vaasa court of appeal in 1794 for “their own amusement and to pass the time”. Other citizens were also allowed to use the library for a small fee. The library had a wide collection of books and maps as well as portraits and copper drawings. It is not likely, that the art items were lent, but the beginning of an art rental shop of a sorts was, however, there. The Reading Library operated until 1845, when the censorship regulations of the Russian rule forced it to close its doors. There are 30 works in the museum today, which remain from the original Reading Library.

    After the Reading Library closed down the citizens of Vaasa were left without a library for five years. Lecturer Oskar Rancken stepped up, and the new library operated until the beginning of the 20th century. In the attic of the Palosaari library was discovered in the 1930s a collection of preserved tomes from the library in question. The tomes were bound in black leather backs, and therefore the collection has received the nickname “The Black Library”.

  • Harrström Windmill Hill

    Gamla Strandvägen 165, Korsnäs

    Harrströmin myllymäki

    Two windmills stand on the Kvarnbacken hill as monuments to past centuries and bygone peasant community. Storkvarnen, the big mill, is one of the largest windmills in Finland.

    Storkvarnen, the big mill, was built in the 1840s, and it still stands on its original site by the sea and its fresh winds. The mill was built by Isak, Karl and Johan Ingels. The wings of the mill are 19,5 metres long and the mill stretches up to 22 metres measured from the ground to the upper tip of the wing. Storkvarnen is the largest functioning mill in Finland. The smaller mill of Kvarnbacken was built at the end of the 19th century. The mills have been restored, and they both function. There were originally five mills on the hill and twelve minor mills in the whole village. The mills of Kvarnbacken are activated every year during the summer festivities, and they grind flour. The ground of the mill is a large tree trunk, which together with big logs and stones functions as the foundation. There is also a loft, a barn, a hut and a smoke sauna on the Kvarnbacken hill.
