Lille Petter Johans stuga ("The cottage of Lille Petter Johan", legendary place)

Show map

At this legendary place in the Land of Legends you'll find a very small 19th century croft where the shoemaker Peter Johan Hagelkvist (1874-1952) once lived. Peter Johan was unusually short, and everything inside the cottage has been adapted to fit his size.

In 1949, the local heritage association of Virestad bought the croft, including the cottage, a barn, the shoemaker’s tools and other inventories for 223 SEK at an auction. The association has taken care of the cottage, which is open all year round, since then.
