Chapter 7 The Åkerblads-Tällbergsgården story
Restricted access

Chapter 7 presents the Åkerblads-Tällbergsgården story with reference to the twenty-two generation Åkerblad family. It illustrates Tällbergsgården hotel business activities in close relation to and as an extension of Åkerblads hotel business activities. Keeping alive the history of earlier generations of the Åkerblad family is a leitmotif applied throughout present future-oriented hotel business activities and is emphasized by the expression: ‘the future is in history’. The story makes us aware that family members in their present entwinement with hotel business activities follow and connect with paths made by people not living any longer. A past unfold in, between, through and around the old houses, cottages and härbren, reminding us of earlier generations’ engagement in farming activities. Owning and managing activities direct attention to maintenance and reconstruction, architectural and interior design that make use of materials such as timber, birch logs, glass, fine-grained metamorphic rock and candle wax.
