Old Liminka is an area with culture historically valuable landscapes. Rantatie, a road running along the Liminganjoki River, used to be the centre and main road of all Liminka services. These services were offered at the different farmhouses along the river, and there were no separate office or commercial buildings as there are today, which gave the area a very natural and cohesive appearance. In past centuries the Liminka vicarage was the centre of all spiritual and public life in the large municipality. The history of Old Liminka reaches back more than 500 years: Liminka is first mentioned in written records in 1477.
Today, you can admire the old buildings by walking or cycling along the river. Abraham’s Culture Park is in the immediate vicinity of the museum area. It is gradually becoming the municipal centre of recreation, culture and events.
