Garmo Stave Church

Garmo Stave Church

Stave churches are Norway’s most significant contribution to architecture. They are the oldest surviving wooden buildings in Norway. At one time there were almost 1,000 stave churches in Norway. There are only 28 left! I feel very fortunate that I have seen a quarter of them.

Garmo Stave Church was built around 1200. In 1921 it was moved to Maihaugen in Lillehammer. Maihaugen is an outdoor museum with over 200 Norwegian buildings.

The photo shows the notched log wings at the gables.
