Ormsta By

Östra Gården
Ormsta is a tiny hamlet, (by in Swedish), with eight households in a rural part of Haninge. The land is today owned by the Swedish Church and the farm land is used by a few of the local farmers. This photo shows what is known as Östra gården". If you speak Swedish you can read an interesting article about Ormsta at haninge.org. I took the photo from a "holme", where in that article the author suggests that the first house was built by the first settler, a man who could have been called Orm. That was back in the Viking Age.
