|This is where our story begins. This is believed to be the house in Stokke where the patriarch Simon Bastesen was born. It has been modified and updated since that time. The 6 children of Simon and his first wife Brita Andersdatter were also born here.|
|Simon moved his family to this house on the Reigstad farm in 1835, although it was not in this location then. The children of Simon and his second wife, Magdeli Steffensdatter, were born here. This house is still beautifully maintained and offers a nice view of the fjord below. The current owners, Johannes and Rakel Reigstad are shown in the foreground.|
