Åkojan ~~ "The River Cottage"
The cottage has been moved from the creek where it stood because they built a dam. Those who built the dam didn't see the value in the old cottage and my grandmother had to work hard to get them to understand that it can't be replaced with a shed.
When she got them to understand they got to move the woodshed...
.... och båthuset också.
... and the boathouse too.
Visitors often write their name and date on the walls. Sometimes you can find a comment about what they were doing when they visited the cottage. "Chopped wood." "Haymaking." "Saw beaver."
My great grandfather's initials 18/6 -47. My first visit is also documented on the wall, I was one year old then.
