A Chest in the Attic

After 140 year in the attic of Huseby Bruk an unknown chest was found. It contained historical documents from Joseph Stephens’s time as a railway contractor in India. He used the profit he earned to buy Huseby Bruk. We can write new history today about both Småland and India with the knowledge we have gained about contacts between the British India and Småland during the 19th century.

The exhibition opens the 11th of May and is a cooperation between Huseby Bruk and Linnaeus University and has been financed through the Kamprad Family Foundation.
