City walk in Stathelle
Before Brevik bridge came in 1962, Stathelle was a junction for traffic between the south and east of Norway.
Stathelle become a seaport from 1774. The place has retained much of its original construction and trading environment, and most buildings have exterior from 1830 to 1940 in the Empire style, or "Stathelle-Empire" as it is called.
Examples of this can be found in Strandgata. In Glosebakken and Rådhusbakken we see good examples of Stathelle style.
Fogdegården and City Hall are also worth a look.
Take a trip over the bridge and out to the island where Fredric Croft Croft's venerable old villa is located.
It was designed by architect Haldor Børve and listed in drag style / historicism in 1890-95.
