Nausthaugen (The boathouse hill)

The croft Nausthaugen was situated here. It was a small place of 3 decare, and a livestock of 3-4 sheep. The last people in residence was the tailor Sivert Jørginus Arntsen and Olvie Olsdotter. Sivert, b. 1936, was a travelling tailor. He charged NOK 2 to make a suite.

Sivert and Olive had 9 children, and one of the daughters, Anna Hegdal was the last person to live here. In 1942, she had the house moved up to the road, where it is still standing, although it is “somewhat” refurbished/restored.

Below, there were several farms that had a boathouse, hence the name.
