The Vik vicarage

This stately high official’s residence was built at Grov in Vik in the mid-18th century and served as a vicarage until 1930. It is 24 meters long and the base of the house measures close to 188 square meters. It is a timber structure built on one floor with a loft.

The vicarage has a tiled roof and exterior paneling. It was probably built in 1764-67. The house actually consists of two separate building joined together. One was the “Herrekammeret” (the gentleman’s lodgings) which was the residence of the vicar and could accommodate the bishop and other guests. The other building was “Borgstova”, a house for servants and farm workers.

The incredible year, seen from a local perspective

In connection with Norway’s Constitution jubilee, the museum’s new exhibit shows the dramatic events on the national and international levels throughout the year 1814. At the same time we focus on our own local communities and our representatives to Eidsvoll.
Who were the five representatives from the Nordre Bergenhus county who took part in the national assembly in the spring of 1814? How were they selected? How did they travel to Eidsvoll and what did they actually do there?
