A walk in the ironworks environment
At Huseby Bruk, statare (contract-workers) and the gentry lived close to each other but still in different worlds. During an outdoor walk in the ironworks environment, you get a sense of how people lived and worked in the late 1800s. You will learn more about Huseby’s different owners throughout the years and the last owner, Ms. Florence Stephens. You will hear about the mill where the waterwheels still spin, the ironworks and the Archimedes screw, see the park and garden that were, and still are, very important to Huseby.
