A History Tours through our Grindstone Mines makes a most entertaining lesson in the history of Orsa community.

Winter Greetings from Orsa Grindstone Mines!
The snow is deep and it will be some time before the sun will brings us thaw to all the walkingpaths here. Spring is on its way with noonday thaw and dripping icicles, even if it is still cold at night.

It is time to take a look in your calender for the coming summer activities. Take a note for this season that The  Orsa Grindstoneassociation will as usual be offering History Tours, Themedays and Museum Guides for your benefit.
Remember to have a look at this webpage in the coming months for more information.

Have a great fun SPRING everyone, and we hope to see you this summer!
