The local history society started in 1948, before that the area was used as a spa. The heart of the Heritage Centre is a typical “parstuga” from the 18th century. In the area, you will find several old buildings including an open air theatre. Every year, at the beginning of August, there is a Lagerlöf feast. Here, you can also find “Östra Emtervik’s Sparbanksmuseum”, a bank museum.
Near the Heritage Centre there is also a museum exhibits carriages, traps, sleds and farming machines.
The museum is run by the “Trillan och kyrkvägar society”. In the summer, the society arranges hikes along old church roads, with features of historical tales and cuffers.
