Namesake of Elizabeth Avenue

Namesake of Elizabeth Avenue

Elizabeth Avenue in Esko is named for Aurora Elizabeth Mattinen, shown here at the original Mattinen home in about 1920 holding a granddaughter, Vera. The property and two-story log portion of the house were purchased in 1887 by Elizabeth, as she was known, and her husband, John Erick Mattinen (known as Erick), from Henry Sunnarborg, left. On the right is one of the Mattinen’s sons, Emil. The one-story part of the house, the kitchen, was built by Erick Mattinen. The building was dismantled in 1955. Origins of the township’s road names will appear in the forthcoming book. (Photo courtesy of Dale and Joanne Mattinen)
