Ågård is a Swedish farmhouse from the 1800s, built in county Småland. Some parts was already built in 1810. Originally Ågården were a four-winged southern Swedish farm, built of pine and covered with sod roofs. Ågård was donated 1921 to Fredriksdal’s open-air museum (in Helsingborg). It was moved and rebuilt entirely on Fredriksdal in 1922-1923.
I have to travel for about 1 hour in total to reach Fredirksdal.
“Vi sålde våran hemman/We sold our Homesteads” is a Emigrant song from the mid 1800’s. Probably the most famous of the songs dealing the Swedes emigration to North America, probably also the oldest. In the years 1850-1930 emigrated approximately 1.51
million people from Sweden, of which 1.2 million to North America. Many of the Swedish emigrants came just from country Småland.
