History

Kittagården is originally one of three major compounds whom were all located around Lake Slagesnäs. When the big land reform was initiated in the 1830’s two of these compounds were moved away from the village and Kittagården is one of these two.

Kittagården is named after a farmer called Kertsen Månsson, nicknamed Kitta.

In the main house there is a trail of ancient time: Wooden walls icarved with axes which are used in the hall, kitchen and one of the bedrooms. Handpainted wallpaper, designed by the painters walking from town to town to earn some food and shelter.

Several rooms have the original floors and ceilings. The house has been renovated but it has ben done so with tremendous respect for the originality and you can quite clearly hear the whispers from history blowing inside.
