Open Doors at Lillan

At the September Open Sunday 10th of September 2017 there is also an Open Doors happening at Dalsbruk. There are several old houses with their personal names attending, telling their part of Dalsbruk’s history for some centuries.

Old houses all have their own stories. Present owners are there to tell what they know and maybe even to hear more about the history of the houses.

And the names of the houses at Dalsbruk, then. Not were houses known by their location but by their names. In Sibirien (Siberia) it was almost always quite cold since it is located on a high bank by the sea. And Kärringslänktan (Hags’ yearning) there used to live the factory’s men still without wife and family.

The event was inspired by the book “Från Honolulu till Sibirien”, collected by the Dalsbruk village union.

I’ll take this book with me to the Open Doors at Lillan.

Lillan will attend, of course. It is one of the oldest houses still left in Dalsbruk. About its name I’ve already told in this post.
