Geocache Description:


Mølla som ble et hotell
Lillehammer aktiemølle var en av tre gjenværende møller langs Mesnaelva ved århundreskiftet.
Aktiemølla var den siste som overlevde og var i drift helt til våre dager.
I 1920 ble vannkraften overflødig, da man gikk over til elektrisitet.
Bøndenes overgang til bruk av skurtresker gjorde en betydelig omveltning av mølledriften. Kornet måtte tørkes og det ble bygd en silo, til lager tørke og lagerplass, (siloen er i dag hotell) Den 30 m høye betongsiloen sto ferdig i 1952.
Fra 1978 leide Felleskjøpet mølla og det siste korn ble malt i 1991. dermed var en 300 årig epoke i Lillehammers møllehistorie over.
Tomta ble solgt og det ble planlagt å bygge hotell der, men siloen bød på store utfordringer. Betongtoppen ble skåret av og innvendige skillevegger fjernet. Etasjeskiller ble montert, og med det fikk hotellet 10 etasjer. På toppen er det bar med flott utsikt over byen.

Vis forsiktighet her kan det være mange muggles.
Sett cachen tilbake på samme måte som den var.
Cachen er en liten boks.
Den en er tilgjengelig hele året.
Ta med blyant.

The Mill who became to a hotel
Lillehammer Aktiemølle was one of three mills belong the river Mesna at the change of century; The Aktiemølle was the last one which survived and got used until our days. In 1920 the waterpower got abundant as the change was made to electricity. When the farmers started to use harvester, the did a big revolution for the management of the mill. The grain had to get dry so therefore they had to build a silo and a store. To day the silo is a Hotel. The 100 feet tall silo made by concrete was finished in 1952. Felleskjøpet rented the mill in 1978, and the last grain got grinded in 1991. Then the 300-year-old epoch in Lillehammer mill history was over.
The property got sold and they hade some planes to build a hotel there, but the big concrete silo made it a big challenge for them. They cut the top off, and tore the inside walls. They made floors, and the hotel got 10 stories. On the top of the hotel there is a nice bar with a great view over the City.
