Established in the year 1884, Spillum Sawmill & Planing was one of the country's first ever sawmills to run on steam. In the 19th Century, sawmill industry was one of the most thriving ones in Norway and the mill proved to be a turning point in the history of Norway's sawmills. Norwegian Sawmill Museum was set up in the year 1991 on the site of the defunct mill. Various exhibits at the museum chronicle the eventful history of the sawmill industry.
Known by the name of Ingstadkleiven Fort in the bygone era, Hegra Fortress was constructed as a boundary defense between the years 1908 and 1910. The fortress was built as a military stronghold to thwart Swedish forces from invading the territory. The rampart was turned into a key military base between the years 1910 and 1926. Post World War II, the fortress came under Norwegian reign. Today, it houses a museum showcasing exhibitions which portray the structure's eventful history.
