Oldervika I – aka “the Hill”

The first known crofters from here are Johannes og Edrikka Eriksdtr, approx. 1855. In 1865, Edrikka became a widow and the eldest daughter, Elen Anna took over the farm in 1875. She was married to Bernt, son of Jens Anders Revik.

Both he and Edrikka lived at Bakken until their death. They were blessed with 9 children: Anton, Jørgen, Jens, Julie, Anna, Oline, Ragne, Petrine, Gurina. At the time of Bernt’s death in 1929, the croft land had been included/incorporated into the farm, however the daughter Gurina owned the house for a time after that.
