About Segestad Farm: The path from Glomnes to Segestad is steep, and before 1723 they had to use a stepladder to reach the farm. All goods which had to be transported to and from the farm, had to be carried on one`s back, up and down the steep path. Several archaeological sites going back to Bronse Age (1500 -500 BC) have been found in Glomsdalen. The last farmer, Jon Sigdestad, died at home in 1961, 69 years old.
