In the area around Dals Rostock from the 18th until the beginning of the 20 century slate was extensively quarried. Almost all roofs were of slate and even the walls of some houses were clad with it. There is a comprehensive exhibit in the Örtagården showing some of the techniques for cutting slate and examples of the different slates. In the museum there are some of the old tools for cutting and shaping slate.
Slate exhibition in Brunnsparken.
In the folk museums first floor you can see a replica of an old pharmacy as it would have been at the beginning of the 20th century. One of Dalsland’s first chemists was placed in Dals Rostock as there was the Spa and a medical practice with a senior doctor.
The old Spa with its buildings is now called Brunnsparken and is owned by Kroppefjälls Hembygdsförening. The old restaurant dating from the 18th century has the original kitchen, dining room, and staff quarters. There is also a folk museum with a comprehensive collection.
Below you can see some pictures of the rooms and collections:
Dals Rostock has grown up around the Spa which was one of Sweden’s oldest. The Spa has existed for roughly 250 years from the middle of the 18th century until 1948. Travellers came from far and wide to drink the iron rich water and to have different treatments, among them mud baths.
Kroppefjälls Sanatorium was built as a hospital for patients with tuberculosis and was run between 1911 and 1960. It was built high up on the plateau as the fresh forest air was thought to as being beneficial to the patients. The area is both beautiful and interesting. Most of the original buildings are preserved and in the forest around the sanatorium there is a walking trail called Doctor Saedens Runda. There are 25 monuments dating from the time of the sanatorium built of wood and stone. Today the old buildings are used as a refugee centre.
