Kvernan is a farm which is located between Lyngdal and Lampeland in Flesberg, near Kongsberg in Numedal, some miles from Oslo in Norway. There has been a mill by the waterfall in the "Lyngdal River" since before 1670. First as a farm mill for Vatnebryn, then, in 1723, ground the river-mill for the neighbours, and in 1801 "the man lived of the place and the mill".
In 1918 the farm got it's own power station that took over for the big water wheels on the mill. The dam beside the outlet of the Vatnebryn waters was repaired in 1911. The mill, as it looks today, was built in the 1920s. Earlier, it was placed about where the power station is today. The power station from 1918 was working until 1986.
In the summer of 1991 we opened Sommerstua (the summer café) for the first time. Since then we've each year had waffles, ice-cream, French fries and more for sale in the nice old summerhouse built in the middle of the 19th century. It has been moved several times, and was set up where it stands now around 1948.
