It is the oldest remaining wooden house in central Helsinki. Head Fireman Alexander Wickholm bought the house in 1859 as his home with his wife Erika and their three children. The rooms of the house have been restored and decorated according to information obtained from estate inventories to illustrate the life of a wealthy minor official’s family.
