The Old Village School (Gamla Byskolan) used to be the local village school for those who lived in Fanthyttan and the surrounding area. We have therefore endeavoured to retain much of its original character when developing it into a course and retreat centre. The centre is situated in a beautiful part of Bergslagen.
The original school was built sometime between 1855 and 1859. In those days there were two classrooms, a two-room apartment with a kitchen and a one-room apartment with a kitchen.
