The Jamanen Granary

Lönnrot could not have imagined that his footsteps would be traced by crowds of tourists literally. This is the famous household building – one of the objects of culture. When he visited Ukhta (Kalevala) for the second time in 1836, Elias Lönnrot stayed with Jamanen, the peasant. The farmstead of this well-situated Ukhtian was not preserved, but the granary still stands, and its 200th anniversary was already celebrated.

The Jamanen granary is the only building in Kalevala which can be confidently connected with Lönnrot's name.
