200 years ago the merchant Mr Olof Elfbrink bought the Hammer and his relatives still own the estate. Most of the present buildings are from that time - a complete village with different workshops, workers lodgings, a mansion with an English park open to the public. A yearly display of sculptures in the park is free of charge.
