School for housewives - Anno 1923

Hovde Gård opened in March 2009 following a complete renovation during which the Grøntvedt family refurbished the former school for domestic science that dates back to 1923. The family has placed great emphasis on retaining the unique building and recreating an environment that instils calm and well-being during your stay with us.

Hovde Gård with Anna Flatby as the manager was the first school for domestic science in Sør-Trøndelag when it was founded in 1923. Seven years had gone by since the foundation of the preparatory committee that had prepared the ground for such a school.  But it was not certain that Ørlandet would be the location of the county's first school for domestic science. Skjetlein agricultural college at Leinstrand fought for the same building, a battle they would eventually lose.


Many a trained housewife left the school well-prepared for their future. A total of 2763 women passed through the school in the first 50 years. At Hovde they learned everything from sewing to milking cows.
