Bjerregård, Denmark

Travel to Bjerregard

Abeline's House (Danish: Abelines Gaard) is a former waterfront farmhouse at Haurvig, just south of Hvide Sande, Ringkøbing-Skjern Municipality, on the Danish West Coast. It was converted into a local history museum for Holmsland Dunes (Holmsland Klit) in the 1970s and is now part of Ringkøbing–Skjern Museum.

The house is named after Abeline Christensen (1870-1957), whose father-in-law, Christen Christensen, together with his wife Kathrine, constructed the buildings between 1854 and 1871. Together with her husband Laurid, she took over the farm in 1890 but in 1904 she became a widow with five children in the age between six and 13. Abeline Christensen took over the position as wreckmaster, which was associated with the property, and continued to run the farm. From the 1920s she supplemented her income from summer guests who were staying on the farm. She also managed the local telephone exchange. Abeline lived on the farm with her son and daughter-in-law until her own death in 1957.
