The manor Olshammarsgården
Verner von Heidenstam's birthplace, the manor Olshammarsgården, was built around 1820 by Carl Rüttersköld, Verner von Heidenstam's grandfather. The wing was also built at that time.
Olshammar is one of the oldest industrial areas of Sweden. There were

situated further down into the garden, towards the south.
