Kallioniemi estate was build in 1896, by a finnish language professor Emil Nestor Setälä and
his wife, author Helmi Krohn. It was a summer escape for many artists and politicians of the
time like composer Jean Sibelius, who were invited by the hoasts to spend time and discuss
matters such as indepence of Finland. The first drafts of finnis flag were desined in Kallioniemi
and E.N.Setälä was one of the people that were involved in writing the independece declaration
