I live in a community were old buildings don’t have much value. Sooner or later they will be teared down. Or, they are left to fall apart, and then the rest is removed. That is often the story, and that seems to be the case with this building. It may not look like much. But it is many centuries old, and was originally made for the copper mining industri in this village. Later it was moved to the place were it is now, as an warehouse by a big lake (the lake was used for transportation those days) for the very important millstone industry. For centuries the millstones from this small community provided that people all over Norway got flour for making bread.
The picture above is from 2006. Last winter the roof started to fall down. The process of getting rid of this building has started. There are more photos of old, norwegian buildings in my photo gallery.
