Høelen farm in Modum

Recommended Posts

Kjell Halvorsen


My 4th ggfather Amund Hansen is listed as living on Høelen farm in Modum in the 1801 census, see http://digitalarkivet.arkivverket.no/en-gb/ft/person/pf01058274002341. I cannot find this farm at Oluf Rygh: Norwegian Farm Names. Is this farm under a different farm, or is there an alternative spelling?


Thank you



Hølen, situated just uphill from the Døvikfoss powerplant in the Drammen river, is part of Enger farm with gnr 53/bnr 4 and has for many decades been uninhabited. Only remnants of the buildings once there are visible in the present day landscape.
