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.
