The three farms in Mosstorp, Alsters parish, Värmlands county, were earlier called Måsserudstorp. [Map]  

This farm, the farm in the middle of three farms in Mosstorp, was bought by my great grandfather Ludvig Johansson, in 1899. The farm was later taken over by my grandfather, Gunnar Modahl and after his death in 1933, by his wife and my grandmother, Ellen. It was owned within the family until 1969.

The foto on top shows us the Manor house from the north. It was restored in early 1960.

The other buildings on the farm is to the west to the Manor house, and are today owned by the western farm in Mosstorp.

On top of the hens house and the stable there was the barn.
