Kopparvågen weigh-house

Falun, Hälsingtorget

Official weighing of the copper produced by the individual smelteries was introduced by the Crown in 1633, so that an annual charge and excise could be levied. An earlier weigh-house was burnt down in the fire of 1761. The one that can be seen today was built in 1774--5.
