Long Description:
This water mill is on exhibit on the grounds of the Seurasaari Open Air Museum (http://www.nba.fi/en/museums/seurasaari_openairmuseum).

From the sign:

"The water mill is a so called "leg-mill". The water turned a horizontal paddle wheel that turned the upper quern stone. Mills were often jointly owned and in Spring, when the streams and small rivers were in the full flood, they worked day and night. The mill was built in the 19th Century"

So apparently this is not a model, but a real windmill which was moved from its original location - not identified - to the Museum.
Current Status: Still In Use

Current Use: Part of the museum exhibit
