Aschanska is of the town’s oldest estates. It consists of two lots; the south lot, Pukegården, is known from tax rolls from 1550.
The Aschan family took over the present property in the 1830s and three generations lived here until 1984. They were part of the town’s high society of factory owners, district court judges and the like.
The Aschan home is now a museum where visitors can step back in time via the well-preserved interior of a burgher’s home.
Old-fashioned flowers and currant bushes bloom in the homestead’s Lillträdgården providing a haven of calm.
