"Musterhusa", located in the east of the mountain farm, is now restored. The name comes from the englishman John Patrich Chaworth Muster who bought the property in 1896. He set up new large house on the east side of the old farm and used these as a summerhouse. His son James Lawrence Chaworth Muster, was ornithologist and Vaulen was one of his bases. Here he ran research on birds and small rodents, and much of his work is found today in museums in England. He was also involved in the creation of partnerships Linge during WW2. In 2004, a commemorative plaque of James Muster was set on Vaulen, and several of the surviving soldiers of Company Linge was present at the ceremony. The property is currently owned by Surnadal Municipality, and can be rented by individuals or groups by contacting the Tourist Informatione.
