Geocache Description:

Myrornas barnhem

På Vallareleden 24 ligger Myrornas barnhem nummer 6, ritat av Arvid Bjerke (1880-1952). Man kan se släktskapet med hans villor.

Barnhemmet byggdes 1910 och hette då "Lisen Levissons hem för späda barn". Man kunde här ta emot runt fyrtio barn under två års ålder, i vissa fall tillsammans med behövande mammor.

Denna välbevarade institutionsbyggnad i en stor trädgård har stensockel, rustik lockpanel och snidad entré. Idag används byggnaden som förskola.

Från gömstället ser man en bit av byggnaden. Ta dig tid att gå upp för backen och titta ordentligt!

On Vallareleden 24 you'll find Myrorna's orphanage number 6, designed by Arvid Bjerke (1880-1952). One can see the kinship with his villas.

The orphanage was built in 1910 and was at the time called "Lisen Levissons home for young children". They could take on about forty children under the age of two years, in some cases accompanied by mothers.

This well preserved building in a great garden has a stone foundation, rustic panelling and a carved entrance. Today, the building is used as a kindergarten.

From the cache site, you can see part of the building. Please take the time to walk up to it and get a better view!
