The Stone Sacristy

The Stone Sacristy is located in Savilahti, Mikkeli, Finland and is the sacristy of the old church. It is considered to be one of Savonia's oldest buildings and one of the most famous symbols of Mikkeli. No one is sure of the date it was built. The sacristy's current façade is the result of renovations in the 1930s.

In 1930, the town council granted the museum association funds to convert the sacristy into an ecclesiastical museum. The following year, the sacristy was opened as a museum with a collection of ecclesiastical artefacts from Mikkeli and the surrounding regions.
