Siggubær

Siggubær

The seaman Erlendur Marteinsson built Sigga’s house in 1902. His daughter, Sigríður (Sigga) Erlendsdóttir, was 10 years old when she moved into the house and she lived there until the year 1978, when she moved to Sólvangur, a local old age home. Her house has been preserved as an example of the home of a labourer and a seaman in Hafnarfjörður at the beginning of the 20th century. There you can experience and get to know how the common people of the town lived at the time.
