The mass and roasting oven
A mass and a roasting furnace were built during the 1820s in Brevens Bruk. The roasting furnace was used for roasting ore in a blast furnace. The roasting was done to remove moisture and make the ore more brittle. At the beginning of the 20th century, it was time for a modernization of the mill. The blast furnace was rebuilt in 1903 and a completely new roasting oven was built in 1905. The roasting oven is open all year round.
Rostugnens Vänner is a non-profit association that started in 2009 with the intention of renovating and preserving the old Rostugnen in the middle of Brevens Bruk.
