Also called 'Crown Mill'.

Mill itself projects like a transept from the centre of a long single-storied building in front of the mill leat; and built out on to the front of this transept is a short but prominent chimney stack.

Called Crown Mill because it was Crown Property, built in 1808, to grind flour for the garrison and the prison at the adjacent Hämeenlinna town.
