Farmhouse, summer cottage, bakehouse, cow-house, summer cow-house, round threshing barn, shed, tool shed, smithy, sauna, earth cellar, barns… That’s what a traditional farm in Västerbotten used to look like, and that’s what it still looks like in Rismyrliden today.

Thirteen unpainted buildings from the early 19th century are situated on a hillside. Up here on the hill, surrounded by forest and mire, the risk that the barley and potato harvest would be ruined by frost was reduced. Rismyrliden may be the place in Västerbotten that best shows what a 19th-century farm used to look like. The many buildings mere a typical feature, where each building had its separate function.
