Seems to be, though info in English is hard to come by. I found one manor house of this name in Joroinen near Mikkeli - would that be the area your dad was from? The main building was built around 1870 and renovated in 1923, so this is likely to be a house your father would recognize.

My Grandfather, Oliver Kelley (Olavi Koskenhovi) was also born there. I visited Koskenhovi with my mother who is Olavi's daugther and Paavo's Koskenhovi's granddaughter in 1995 AT that time, Leila (my grandfather's cousin) owned the home. I know that the house has since been passed down to a family member. There was a 150th? celebration of the house last summer. I am interested in tracing

Koskenhovi family here is the US as we are trying to piece together and research the our ancestry. We live in the Boston area.

Marja,

Nice to hear of you. Do you live in Brussels now.

Jag lever med min fru Martina i Esbo nära Helsingfors och över sommaren mestadels på Åland-sommarställe, vad jag ärvde av min far Otto.

Hälsningar också till Anki och Juhani
