|The facade of the 18th century Järnbärare Petterson's House at Haga|
In 1822, järnbärare Petterson aquired the existing house and land belonging to it from a widower called Greta Björk. Petterson moved in with his wife, daughter, maid, and man servant. He added an extension to the buildings, aided by his son-in-law, carpenter August Bark.
Today it appears as it once was, fully restored, in the middle of the Haga area of Göteborg, and is an important historic monuments from the city’s history.
