For 90 years, Asko Vuorinen’s ancestors lived in a stately, red farmhouse atop the hill, 400 miles north of Helsinki, Finland, that they called Mulikka. “The original house dated back to 1564, and it is said that nearly everyone from the area goes back to Antti Mulikka, who came there, far inland, and built the house,” Vuorinen said.
In time, Vuorinen discovered that Antti Mulikka’s great-grandson Eric was banished by the Swedish government to the colony of New Sweden, where he built a house similar to the original farmhouse.
