Nore and Uvdal historical farmstead

Nore and Uvdal historical farmsteadNore and Uvdal historical farmstead is situated in the former vicarage with a great view of the valley. With Uvdal stave church nearby, the place has a lot to offer. During the summer season there is a sales exhibition with local artisans in the schoolroom.

Of the original houses, only the vicarage storehouse and the school house is left, the other buildings were moved here from various locations in the village.

The farmstead now has 17 buildings. In addition to the houses, there are tools and other equipment both inside and outside.

In summer 2007, the “Grønneflåtstua” historical building was moved here, and the official opening of the farmstead was held on 3 October by Mayor Eli Hovd Prestegården.

A new building in the yard triggers unimagined activities. “Grønneflåtstua” is used for private parties such as weddings, christenings and other celebrations. It is a suitable venue for cultural evenings, concerts and other gatherings.
