Raised Storehouse

From the Mörten district, Luleå city

A log storage building from 1836 which is now used as a storage space for Hägnan’s activities. Raised storehouses were used to store food such as flatbread, dried and salted fish and meat, as well as cereals and other provisions in need of protection.

To prevent burglary, the raised storehouse had no windows. It was also elevated on posts to help protect its contents from moisture and pests. These two-storey buildings could be used as sleeping quarters in the summer months.
