ÅMINNEFORS IRONWORKS, RASEBORG

Åminnefors Ironworks is the youngest of the Raseborg ironworks. It was founded in 1877 for the purpose of zinc production by the last fall of the Mustio River before it reaches the Pohja Bay. The works did not, however, succeed. From 1890 onwards, when the Fiskars corporation took over the works, the operations started properly. The power plant was built at the beginning of the 20th century. The mill today served as a storage for reinforcement steel.

Åminne Manor situated in vicinity of the ironworks has older traditions than the ironworks – it was founded as early as in the 1570’s.

The middle lower floor of the current manor is said to date back to the middle of the 18th century, and the second floor was probably built towards the end of the 18th century. It was during that time the manor got its Gustavian character.

The manor has had many owners, and nowadays it functions as an independent restaurant called Åminne gård. It is also the club-house of Nordcenter golf.
