Roela Cone Hut museum

Lääne-Viru County, North-Estonian Recreation Area
Roela Cone Hut is a former cone dryer, built in the 1930s, renovated and opened by RMK in 2008. The Cone Hut operates in cooperation with Vinni municipality and NGO Roela Kodukant.
After the pine seed failure of 1925 in Estonia, the Head Office of State Forests started to set up a network of cone dryers and one was established in 1927-1928 in Roela, mainly for the production of spruce seeds. It was the most modern in Estonia at the time.
