Sten-Pelle's quarry

Pelle Karlsson, also called Sten-Pelle ("Stone Peter"), was active at the quarry from the middle of the 1920s up until the end of 1940s. The stone mason's hut at the quarry was Sten-Pelle's home. It has now been restored to its original condition. The displays inside the hut include information about life as a stone mason and pictures of Sten-Pelle's work.
