42. Håkon Kaulum - Frå Fjærland

(1863 - 1933)

Kaulum was born in Bergen and the first time Kaulum signed his name in the hotel's guest book was in 1897. He was particularly fascinated by Esefjella(the Esa Mountains), and eventually moved to Balestrand and built his house "Jotunheimen". Unfortunately the house was lost in an avalanche in 1928.

The year of 1928 was a year of disaster for Balestrand with numerous avalanches and loss of lives. When "Jotunheimen" was crushed by the snow the village lost not only a very unique structure, but all the pieces of art inside as well. He died in Kristiania(Now Oslo)
