Not exactly by popular demand, but since Leif asked, here is the Högbo report.
The buildings from the Högbo bruk were built during the modern incarnation of the mine/forge in 1885. The mine is now closed, but there are still lots of roads and buildings preserved from that time. Everything is painted ‘Falurödd’, which is the paint made from the tailings of a copper mine in Falun, just down the road in Dalarna.
The smithy is now used by a glass blower named Björn. On Saturdays he is mostly selling things, but I came to see him once on a Wednesday when he was blowing glass, and that was really neat. At one time the big fire place at the back was used for heating metal, but now he uses a modern arc oven over on the right.
Högbo is now a quaint set of shops, a place to do workplace team building trips, and a ski track. However, there is still a lot of steel working in the community, it has just moved down the street to Sandvik in the town of Sandviken.
