Sights and tastes of Finnish heritage in Maine
Jul 2016 • Family
Saw great pictures of people who could have been my relatives. When the Finns came to America, they worked hard and did not talk much about the land they had left. It was great to talk with others of Finnish descent and to see names similar to my ancestors. Hours are limited and get there early if you want some home cooked goodies.

Exploring Finnish-American Heritage
Jul 2016 • Family
A group of dedicated second and third generation Finnish-Americans keep the spirit of their community alive with exhibits, Saturday bake sales (authentic Finnish "pulla" coffee bread), and occasional church services. Fun to see how the turn of the century immigrants contributed to local area development, as well an exhibit of Kosti Ruohomaa, a famous Finnish American photographer and Andrew Wyeth friend. We love talking to the women who staff the house and hear stories and about their connections back to Finland.

Wonderful atmosphere

You can step in and just feel the history and
care taken to make sure anyone entering is comfortable.
The service was simple, straightforward, not "preachy",
just substantial and well delivered.

The shop next door had some wonderful things made by
so many elderly and younger patrons. Well worth the visit,
chat with friendly and loving people. The foods we were fortunate
to bite into were very good. A pleasant morning experience for all
of us.

This is a historic church and parsonage (now the Heritage House) built in 1921 that overlooks the St. George River and beautiful fields. The Heritage House contains historical items related to the Finnish community that once thrived in these parts and also has a little gift shop with Finnish themed items and baked goods. Get there early on Sunday so you don't miss out on buying a loaf of yummy Nisu/Pulla bread. Tastes so good toasted with butter and jam!! Church service is held every other Sunday at 2pm.
