Hove Church is the oldest stone building in the Sogn region and probably one of the oldest in the country. It has been dated to the end of the 12th century. The church is named after Hove farm. Rich burial finds from Roman times show Hove to be an early chieftain s residence and historians think the church may have been built by a prominent landowner as a private chapel.
