In Kuivasensaari island there is a fully functional windmill built back in 1804. In 2002, local residents repaired and restored the windmill back to its original form. The Rahikkala windmill is of the post mill type, meaning that the whole body of the mill that houses the machinery is mounted on a single vertical post, around which it can be turned to bring the sails into the wind. Surrounding the mill are stone fences built at the turn of the 20th century, which are also repaired.
