This small and peaceful former industrial community is situated close to the Gulf of Bothnia, between the cities of Söderhamn and Hudiksvall. This ironworks was founded in 1687, when Sweden was a great power. The aim was to deliver iron to the swedish armament factories. One of those was located in the nearby city of Söderhamn.
Today the visitor will face an interesting cultural history. The Manor from the beginning of the 19th century, rebuilt and augmented some 90 years later, is the natural eye-catcher.
The Chapel stems from the same period as the Manor.

The environment contains many relics from the industrial period like the blast-furnace, tilthammer, blacksmith´s forge, steam saw-mill as well as dams. These are constructed to provide water power to furnace and hammers. Some of the buildings are ruins today but many are restored, or are being restored, to serve the visitors.
