The Name

The croft named Skogstorpet, was originally placed on the estate of Sundranäs, the living quarters of lieutenant-colonels. The name of the croft is known since the 1750's but was called Fiskaretorpet when the former soldier by the Kronoberg Regiment Jonas Larsson Fiskare moved there in 1815. Fishing was a main source of income for later tenants which lead to the name Fiskaretorpet getting stuck to the croft.

The name Skogstorpet can be translated into "The croft of the woods" and Fiskare torpet can be translated into "The croft of the fisher".

Today's Location

In 1928 the old croft was moved the the museum park called Kulturparken Småland in Växjö. It was the head of the museum, Paul Boberg who made sure that the building so typical for south western parts of Småland and northern parts of Skåne and Blekinge was moved to the park. The land of the croft was continued to be used and a new house was built.


A Högloftsstuga is a single story croft with an addition with a loft, which makes the addition of the croft much higher than the original building, They are also known as Sydgötiska" houses.
