The mansion of Blekhem, seen from across the lake Bleken.

At summertime, a few years in the beginning of the 20th century the female author Anna Maria Roos, distant relative to the owners, stayed here and wrote a couple of books about the country life, in a somewhat idealized way. Farms, farmers and other people in the neighbourhood were used as models.

The books were used in the primary school all over the country and are well known and loved by our grandparents.

Blekhem reminds of the mansion in the books.
