Saimaa Geopark’s natural and cultural site Pattoi heritage house was built in 1873. Farm was owned by family Nikulaiset for four generations from 1841 onwards. The heritage house was transferred to the municipality of Juva in 2004 and is currently a museum. Only a few basic repairs have been made to the farm, so it is still in its late 19th century form without electricity, water, or drainage systems.
