The market square has been located in the same place since the late 1770s, only the surrounding city has changed. The redesign of a valuable, centrally located and large market area became topical in 1908. Architect Hmas Lindgren, who was born in Hämeenlinna, commissioned a plan to improve the market area and reorganize the market square.
Markets and squares can be divided into different categories according to their purpose, which include market squares, central squares, city or representative squares, station squares and traffic squares. The Finnish word tori is derived from the Swedish word torg, which in turn is borrowed from the ancient Russian word tŭrgŭ.
