The Finnish people were one of the first ethnic groups to arrive in this area in the late 1890's and early 1900's.

They built this building on this site in 1909. It was used for stage plays, dances and other social events put on for the Finnish community.

It was also a place for the workers to discuss working conditions and how to improve them. They were very instrumental in organizing the first unions.
