History of Taipaleen­niemi

B&B Taipaleenniemi has many stories to tell during the past years.

In 1912 a dairy was built in Niittylahti and it was called Rajalahden Meijeri Oy. Unfortunately, the dairy had to be closed because of the First World War.

In 1924 it was decided that the dairy could be converted into a school, and in autumn in 1925 an elementary school was founded in the old buildings of the dairy. During its busiest years, the school had about a hundred pupils, but during the years the number of pupils decreased and the school was closed in 1969.

Already before B&B Taipaleenniemi, accommodation has been arranged in Niittylahti. In 1972 a hostel called Niittylahden Lomakoti was founded and it served guests until 1976. The labour association in Savonlinna called Savonlinnan työväenyhdistys bought Taipaleenniemi in 1976 and arranged many events and parties there until 2017.
