Villa Verma is a house with an interesting story. It was put up at Verma in 1936. But originally it was a farmhouse in Brøstdalen probably from late 1800 century.
In those days it was not unusual to dismantle timberhouses and move them to other places. Villa Verma was set up on the foundations of a former shop at Verma. In connection with the building of the railway "Raumabanen" and the bridge "Kyllingbrua" between 1916-1923 a jewish businessman by the name Karpol placed a small shop at Verma. Karpol later dismantled and moved this house by horse and cart to Vinstra in Gudbrandsdalen. He established here with his family, but during second world war tragedy hits his family. His 2 daughters and wife was deported to Germany and disappeared in the concentration camps. The rooftop of his shop was a popular playground for kids at Verma. It was left behind in the garden of todays Villa Verma. Villa Verma was the home of several families and persons after 2. worldwar and it also served as the village library for some years.
