About Us:
    The Finnish-American Heritage Association of Ashtabula County (FAHA) is an organization dedicated to maintaining and preserving Finnish heritage in our community and county. We strive to gain a broader understanding of Finnish traits, customs, and traditions, and to learn what contributions the Finns have made to life in America.
    Finally, we wish to retain and transmit this knowledge to succeeding generations.
