Famous beacon of Russarö has this nickname because it's light was a last hail for thousand Finnish emigrates left the motherland for better life in America in the end of 19AC.
First beacon was built here in 1723. This building was erected in 1862. It seems to me the addition on the left of the tower is the fire control post.
