Why locals love it

Dahlfors Factory is the oldest factory building in Vantaa, established in 1903. The Factory was founded by Walfrid W. Wahlberg in the late 1880s in Vantaankoski. The still existing brick factory building was preceded by a two-storey log building. The brick factory building is exactly the same as the old wooden mill.

Why you should visit it

For a long time, the factory was the only Finnish manufacturer of veneers. It was in operation until the 1960s. In addition to the Veneer factory and the mill, other production facilities were created in the Vantaankoski area, such as silver smelting, slate plant and sawmill. Wahlberg also built a waterfall dam, which led to the use of hydropower.

Special tip

Wahlberg also built residential building beside the factory, as well as workers' homes, factory facilities. Other buildings in the area were demolish.
