Maria Lundberg first visited Strömbacken in 2006 and took these pictures. This was our ancestor's home on the Brandbo Peninsula in Västmanland that he left behind when he came to America in 1880.

Here is the site the aerial view and maps come from for those who want to explore in more detail. You can choose maps or aerial views, zoom in and out, etc.
A record from around 1940 states that the estate was 268 acres of which 85 were farmland and 183 forest. The main building or house was built in the early 1800s, another building a little after that. Maria believes that refers to the boathouse. The 'farm buildings' were built in the 1880s and the barn around 1990.
