The Spirit Shop

Dramatic local history

Here, the dramatic local history of the Hustad region is told. We look back to the early 12th century when King Øystein Magnusson held court at Hustad and move onwards to the past century when people survived on fishery and farming.
Hustadvika is one of the most feared stretches of the Norwegian coast. This has always marked the people here and is an important part of history. And then you must of course learn about the activity here, where we now are. Visiting the Spirit Shop is an extraordinary aperitif.

The Museum

The History of a Dutch shipwreck

A Cultural Sight sign on the seabed tells scuba divers that they have arrived at the right spot, namely where a Dutch merchant vessel was wrecked in the early 18th century. In 1985, two scuba divers from Molde found the so-called Stoplelei Wreck in Hustadvika, and marine archeologists immediately became interested in the ship.

The wettest attraction of Hustadvika
When the unknown merchant vessel was lost with man and mouse in Stopleleden close to 300 years ago, this tooks place in one of the sections of the Norwegian coast offering the roughest weather. At that time, Dutch vessels frequently sailed along the coast.

From the late 16th century and far into the 18th century, Romsdalen and Nordmøre participated in extensive timber trade with the continent. Many refer to this period as Hollendertiden (the Dutch time) because of the Norwegian trade with the Netherlands, the leading shipbuilding nation in Europe.

Food collection produced a historic find
During their winter vacation in 1985, the two scuba divers Bjørnar Johansen and David Berg Tuddenham travelled to Hustadvika for a diving trip. The two guys intended to collect mussels, crabs, and other seafood goodies, but they rapidly lost focus when halfway in their dive they became aware of large quantities of yellow bricks on the seabed. During this dive, they understood that they had discovered a shipwreck with a very exciting load.

The find was reported to the NTNU University Museum, and it did not take long before conservator Jørgen Fastner and archaeologist Kristian Pettersen arrived from Trondheim to visit. The practical excavation of the shipwreck was carried out by voluntary divers from the Molde Diving Club with Knud Jørgensen leading the work. For one of the divers, Berg Tuddenham, the excavation job had the personal consequence that he later was educated as an archaeologist with protection of cultural heritage under water as his field of work.

Two summer seasons were used for excavating all the material of the wreck. These objects may today be found at NTNU Vitenskapsmagasinet (Scientific Storage Site), the Romsdal Museum, and out at Hustadvika Guesthouse. Our location is only six kilometers as the crow flies from the wreck site, and on a stormy day it is easy to imagine the drama taking place in Stolpeleden 300 years ago.

Hustadvika Guesthouse appreciates being able to show the more than 300 well-preserved objects; in our boat shed loft in Storholmvågen, everybody may visit the exhibition during our opening hours.



Timber and fish trade

STORHOLMEN is the name of the place where Hustadvika Guesthouse is located. The location has been on the map since the 16th century. At this time and even before, timber was shipped out to Holland from here

Thus it has been a trading centre, and the place has had many owners, mostly traders from Kristiansund and Trondheim. One of today’s best-known names is Lossius from Kristiansund. Captain Lossius owned Storholmen for a period up to 1746. In the 19th century, the owners were more local.

By the scale of the time, it was big business. Jekts (a wide-hulled cargo sailboat) and galleasses brought salted cod in from Lofoten and Finnmark. This generated intense fish-drying activity over the spring and summer.

Storholmen had both innkeeping and spirit sale. At most, up to 200 men worked here.

During a storm in 1901, the high water took everything with it which had been built around the sound of Storholmvågen, and all operations were more or less terminated. 18 sea houses were levelled.
