Dverberg Church

Dverberg Church

Dverberg, NO

Dverberg Church was built in 1843 by the architect Chr.H.Grosch. Originally it was planned to build the church without a tower, but it was given a tower, partly because the tower served as a navigational landmark on the coast. It was also proposed to place the pulpit above the altar, as was customary in octagonal churches, as the parish priest opposed this solution. In front of the church there is a memorial stone "in memory of the fishermen lost in Dverberg".
