  • 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.

  • Hägglund’s Photography Museum

    Lotlaxvägen 9, Vöyri

    Hägglundin valokuvamuseo

    Hägglund’s Photography Museum was inaugurated in 2000, and it is founded upon photographer Erik Hägglund’s studio. The wide collection of cameras and the studio’s equipment illustrate the history of photography from the 1910s to the present day.

    Erik Hägglund from Rökiö was interested in art already at an early age, and he travelled to Sweden to work as the apprentice of a painter. There he was employed in a studio and his interest in photography was aroused. When he returned to his home region, he established a modest studio in a stave shed in 1910. He constructed his first atelier camera himself and also painted the shooting background himself. Those are both displayed in the replica of the workshop built inside the museum.

    In the Isokyrö Museum can be seen peasant artefacts from the latter half of the 19th century. Everyday utensils are displayed as if the people of the house had just gone to their work outside and left the house for the day. The visitor rather steps into a genuine 19th century milieu than an exhibition.

    The museum is characterized by two traditional 1½-storey Ostrobothnian houses. They are grouped with the outbuildings in a way typical for a traditional courtyard. The main building, the Piuhola house, dates back to 1768 and has been moved to the area from the Kuivila village. The buildings represent the building traditions of the 18th and 19th century. The artefacts in the museum also originate from that period.
