In 1897 a cairn was constructed by Norwegians and Russians (todays Finland), to mark the point at which the boarders converge. Sweden was not involved in the process: Norway and Sweden could not agree upon the establishment of a Boarder Comission, hence the cairn was not bejeweled with any of the three countries emblems.

In 1901 Norway and Sweden came to an agreement regarding the new Boarder Comission.
The cairn was covered in cement, but unfortunately the cementation enclosed only the upper part, and the cairn soon became heavily reduced by weather, wind and ice.

The present cairn was constructed in 1926.
