Ørnes Merchant`s center

The Merchant`s center is situated in the centre of Ørnes.

Elling Pedersen was granted a licence to run an inn in 1794. This established the beginnings of Ørnes Merchant`s center and led to the erection of further buildings in the following years. The main building, the “old bakery” and the smithy can still be seen today. If you walk behind the main building you can position yourself to exclude the modern development from view and imagine how it must have looked a couple of hundred years ago.

Today the “old bakery” is used by Meløy history club.

The Merchant`s center is open to the public. You can sit down and sense the historic atmosphere there with the help of several exhibitions. With only a short distance to the Hurtigruten ships, buses and ferries, the Merchant`s center from 1794 makes the perfect stop.
