Life by the river Skjern 100 years ago

The small house was built in 1922 by brothers Niels Provstgaard and Søren Kristian Jensen. The brothers lived off the nature around them, selling fish and hunting otters. The small hunting lodge bears witness to them and their way of life. Niels Provstgaard, a carpenter, built things when the brothers needed them, such as the display cabinets for his large and beautiful bird collection. The brothers were pioneers in many ways and were some of the first in the area to have a telephone, because they needed to know the price of skins and fish before selling them.
