Vanhakylä Manor

HISTORY
The magnificently beautiful Vanhakylän kartano (Vanhakylä Manor) is located in the middle of Kaltsila village's beautiful cultural landscape. The manor was founded in 1751 by the crown's official Henrik Packalén . The main building of the manor is a neoclassical building designed by building master Heikki Tiitola. The old main building of the manor was burnt down in 1918 and the present main building was completed in 1925. Between 1999 and 2002, the main building of the manor and the entire park area underwent a major renovation, and the manor was restored with a major overhaul.

The large park is home to about 50 different apple, cherry, pear and other fruit trees, and is also home to an abundance of hardwoods such as oaks, linden, pencil stand, ash, pine needle and coltsfoot.

The restoration of other buildings in the yard, such as the shrine barrier and the granary, has continued in the 2010s using traditional methods. In summer 2019, a summer café was opened in Väentupa.
