|Eidanger kirke, built in 12th century|
My grandmother Dagmar was the last of our family line to be born on the farm Øvald. The noblewoman Maria Lukretia von Boeselager had been her seventh great grandmother.
This home ↑ was built in 1860 on Øvald. At that time Dagmar's great grandparents Nils Jensen and Johanne Olsdatter worked the farm. Johanne was well known for her cooking and entertaining skills as the couple hosted gatherings of family and friends on the beautiful Eidanger Fjord.
|Telemark Museum - "fair use"|
Today the property has the address Nystrandveien 184, Porsgrunn and "Norpost" is one of several companies at that location.
