Geocache Description:

Traditional!

(SWE) Mitt "Världens Centrum": Hirvlax, Nykarleby. Geografiskt ett centrum för västra Munsala där vägarna bär till byarna Monäs, Kantlax, Monå och Munsala. På 50-60 talet fanns här centralbutik, mejeri, kvarn, post, bank, bar, servicestation, skola och bönehus mm. I byn bodde då 250-300 personer. Utvandringen har varit stor sen dess.I dag bor ca 100 personer i byn, jordbruk och minkfarmning är huvudnäringarna. I byn finns kvar finns butik/post, skola, daghem och kyrka. Min första traditional cache! (FIN) “Maailman napa”, minun mielestä: Hirvlax kylä! Länsi Munsalan keskus josta tiet menevät kohti Monäs, Kantlax, Monå ja Munsala kyliin. 50-60 luvulla täällä oil keskusmyymälä, meijeri, mylly, posti, pankki, baari, koulu ja rukoushuone ym. Kylässä asuivat silloin 250-300 hklöä. Muuttoliike Ruotsiin ja Kanadaan on sen jälkeen ollut suuri. Tänä päivänä asuvat n.100 hklöä Hirvlaxissa. Maaviljelys ja turkistarhatoimintaa ovat pääelinkeinot. Jäljellä on myymälä/posti, koulu, lastentarha ja kirkko. Tämä on minun ensimmäinen kätkö! (ENG) My “Center of the Globe”: Hirvlax village. Geographically a center of West Munsala from which the roads goes to Monäs, Kantlax, Monå and Munsala villages. During the 50-60’s shop, milk factory, mill, post, bank, school, bar, petrol station, church etc. During that time about 250-300 people where living there. After heavy emigration to Sweden and Canada about 100 people are living in the village. Agriculture and Fur farming are nowadays the main activities and left are shop/post, school, kinder garden and the church. My first cache!
