Hantverksbyn (the Handicraft Village) history

In 1977 Sören Eriksson started the building and in 1979 it was opened under the name of Slöljdtuppen (The Handicraft Rooster). Initially the facility was used as a handicraft center and was run by the Persson & Helsing Families during the next few years. In 1986 Ola Karlsson bought the facility and started an expansion that was opened in 1987. The restaurant building was renovated in 1988. Ola Karlsson passed away in 1990 and the Hantverksbyn foundation took over. In 1992 the Wennberg family took over the facility, but went into bankruptcy the same year. In 1993 the Höglund/Strandberg family took over the facility and the nearby gas station opened. In 2016 Lena Jäderbrink took over ownership, after having rented the facility since 2011. Today you’ll find a hotel, restaurant and handicraft store, open year around.
