Voss, Hordaland (Vestland)
Owned by the National Trust of Norway since 1906.
The smallest of the National Trust’s buildings. The little one-room storehouse originally came from the old chaplain’s farm at Ullestad in Voss. It was used to store meat and dairy products, and was probably built gable to gable with a bakehouse. The farms of Øvre and Nedre Ullestad were located directly above the site where Voss railway station is located today. The chaplain's farm was moved to the flat area by Vangsvatnet lake and later had to give up land to the railway. The storehouse was gifted to the National Trust of Norway in 1906, and it was moved again in around 1913, this time to Gullfjordungen, and placed next to Lydvaloftet, where it still stands today. The building is only open to the public in connection with special events.
Things to do in the area: The National Trust of Norway also owns Finnesloftet and Lydvaloftet, both of which are found in Voss. Voss has plenty of activities to offer, from extreme mountain and water sports to museums, shopping and the Vossa Jazz festival. Visit Voss
