Rådstugugatan

On both sides of Rådstugugatan there are well-preserved wooden buildings from the 18th and 19th centuries. The low houses built around courtyards with the doorway and residence facing the street are typical of the 18th century. The residence was often timbered, red in colour and with small windows. Inside the yard there was a barn and storage building. During the19th century people added a storey, embellished the exterior and painted the wall panels with light oil paints, always facing the street. Fences and gateways created a private street space.
