Stone Cottage

The Stone cottage (Stenstugan) is situated on a slope close to the two storehouses on their supporting poles belong¬ing to the Delsbo Farmstead. It was built at Skansen in 1891 using labourers’ cottages from the west of Blekinge as a model and it shows how poor people were obliged to live in southern Sweden during the 19th century which was a time of rapid population growth. The building consists of a single room with furnish¬ings and fittings of the most elementary sort. The people living in such cottages owned no land.
