“Nice "village" - originally workers' dwellings, Ulefoss”
Reviewed November 7, 2012

These nice little red buildings originally housed the families of the workers of the adjacent iron mongery (Ulefos Jernværk - Norways' oldest running industrial company (1657)), and the former sawmill, and other industrial activities.
Today, you find no people living here, but various diplays, gallery, shops, among them an antiquarian bookshop, a nice little cafeteria, etc.
