Itätalo across the ages
Itätalo echoes Finnish history. In ancient times it was a centre for trade and fishing. During the Middle Ages it belonged to the Bishopric of Turku. After the Reformation it served as a hunting estate for the influential Flemings of Louhisaari and became what Finns called a Rustholli that in 1784 was sold to a local family. In 1809, Finland became a Grand Duchy under Russia. So the Rustholli were no longer in the business of equipping soldiers for the Army in exchange for tax favours.
Estates like Itätalo continued to prosper, especially in the late 19th century. Their wealthy owners built ostentatious houses known as Farmer’s Manors. Many of these working farms later fell into a sad decline.
Itätalo is in the hands of new owners since 2002. The buildings are being carefully restored to their former glory. Is any better starting point to holistic healing Center?
