The road leading up to the village.

Stimmerbo & Torrbo bergsmansbyar

A nice example of what a village characterised by homesteaders looked like, dated back to the 16th century. Selfguided visits.



The main street is designed with a long row of terraced cottages.

The homesteader villages of Stimmerbo and Torrbo are close to the east shore of lake Norra Barken, not far from Smedjebacken, and are fine examples of the villages that were so distinctive of the homesteaders’ way of life.
