Garveriet is situated in Viosen, which is the ”old town” in Snåsa, and was once the town centre of Snåsa with both bakery, commerce and pier. The building housing Garveriet is the oldest in Viosen and it was constructed as a tannery and lime distillery, and a residence in 1881.
It has also been an icehouse, fish factory, manufactory, grocery, fruit and tobacco, watchmaker, photographer, chainsaw workshop, café, accounting office, frame, photo shop and more. Garveiriet is newly renovated and the official opening of the Garveriet Kafe and thirft store in 2015 marked the continuation of the building's historical use.
