Ekshärads cemetery - ironcrosses

Ekshärad
Visit Ekshärads cemetery, beautiful located with a view over Klarälven and see the famous ironcrosses!
There is a unique heritage preserved at the cemetery. Over 450 forged ironcrosses, most of them from the 1700s and 1800s, are preserved. Ironcrosses were usual in the cemeteries in Värmland until the 1900s, but they were not functional and outdated so they started to disappear. They throw them away or seld them as scrap. They also put them away in Ekshärad, and their home was in the outside of the cemetery for many years. Luckely, they choose to put the ironcrosses back in the 1920s, which makes it a unique place to visit!
