VB 10: Seppä-Mäki
cottage, Repovesi - Verla, Kouvola, 4+2 persons

As far as is known the cottage has been named after Anselm Mäki who used to work as a blacksmith (seppä) at the factory's repair shop. Anselm had made a big life decision to work at the factory in 1904. 

A man called Lampila built the cottage in 1890. In the 1920's the cottage was marked on a hand-drawn map as "painter Seppä-Mäki". Even in papers from 1930 the cottage was identified with the name Mäki. Later, in the 1950's, the cottage was used by the forest department, and at that time at least the forest foreman lived in it. During the last years of the factory the cottage was occupied by a pensioner from the forest department. 

Cottage and Yard

Seppä-Mäki is a 62 square meter wood cottage built in 1890, with a kitchen-living room and a bedroom. The cottage sits on a beautiful cliff with a spectacular view of the museum area. The yard has a large lawn and a private shore, though the bank is rocky and steep. The cottage houses four to six people. 


The cottage is located approximately 500 meters from the Mill Museum at the Vähä-Kamponen shore, downstream of Verlankoski. The cottage has road access.
