Möhkö of the forests
Möhkö Ironworks Museum, Ilomantsi
Möhkö of the forests -exhibition tells about the traditions of logging and log floating as well as the changes that machines brought into the daily lumbering work.
After the iron manufacturing stopped, Möhkö Ironworks and its forests were acquired by Enzo Gutzeit. It was the beginning of Möhkö´s "forest age", which lasted until 1970´s. The people of the village earned their living by lumbering, and the main building called Pytinki hosted the district managers´ office.
