Forsbacka is from the beginning an
old village built around an ironfactory.
The History goes as far away as since
the 1500 century, but the first evidence
of any inn business are dated to 1782.
At that time there was a declaration
that allows the inn to serve aquavit,
but only if they could sell 150 barrels
a year. A few years later they also got
permission to sell beer.
At first only clerks from the ironfactory
had the permission to use the facilities
but in late 1950 it opened for the
public as well.
Today it´s an modern business with
a genuine touch.
