In the village of Koski alongside river Kullaanjoki, on
a site that spans hundreds of years of watermills, you can find the Mill of Äijä, renovated by Kosti Setälä in the 1920s. During
the 1960s, the building came into possession of the county of Kullaa and since the beginning of the 2000s, it has been leashed out to the Local History
and Museum Association of Kullaa.
During its time under the ownership of the county, the building decayed heavily. Through the initiative
of the Association, basic repairs were accomplished. The work was started by renovating the foundation and framing back to their original condition.
The base floor, floor and the roof as well as the rooftop were created anew and the windows were replaced. The building spans 100 m2,
with the exhibition area being roughly 200 m2 in size.
During the summer of 2007 inside the mill was built a permanent exhibition, which tells of the usage of the power
of water in the Kullaanjoki river, and contains the stories of twenty different watermills in the river Kullaanjoki and its branches.
