The first church was completed in 1754 and the second in 1889.[6] Officially, the municipality of Kärkölä was founded in 1867.[7] In the late 19th century, the eccentric engineer named Carl Constantin Collin, who ruled over large areas of both Hollola and Kärkölä, built large parks and building groups in the Huovila area.[8]
