Kvernbakken, Rostadbakken 1

Photo: Kvernbakken is beautifully situated on the slopes down towards the fjord. A croft house of the combined type with an unusually long outbuilding.

This house is probably cleared by Petter Kristian Brunech around 1820. He later became the owner of one of the Melhus farms.

Sofie and Anton Rostad (son of Peder) were the last to live in Kvernbakken. They lived there until 1954, and the same family had used the place since before 1865.

It was a big place with both cows, sheep and pigs, and cultivated both potatoes and grains.
