Korkeakoski Church

Korkeakoski Church or the Small Church is located in the current municipal center of Juupajoki. The church is also known as the Shoemaker’s Church as it was originally built by Aaltonen Shoe Factory as a parish hall for the spiritual needs of the industrial community at the time in 1951. Vuorineuvos Lauri Kivekäs hired architect Jaakko Tähtinen to design this church built of six-inch logs. Instead of the parish hall, the name Small Church was soon established
