The name of the cottage comes from the Leivo family, who were its last residents. The head of the house, Aarne, worked at the factory as a horseman. A horse gin was used to lift spruce timber out of the water to be processed in the factory. Aarne's wife, Eelin, had come to the factory in 1946 to work as an acceptor.
During the 1920's and the 1930's the cottage was known as Uncle Tassu's Cottage (after log driver Taavi Pukkila). In the 1950's Vainio Cottage was used. The name Leivo Cottage caught on later.
