In the 19th century, the official's residence lived in Hallingdal in Nesbyen. For the visitors, "Næsbyen" appeared with a city-like feel. These included, among others, a magistrate, bailiff, sheriff, clergyman, attorney and doctor, as well as several merchants who ran land-based and varied industries.

In these "wild" areas of the inland Norway, "Næsbyen" was a place where urban habits, style and fashions gained a foothold. Here the artists too could find a sophisticated and urban residence on their study trips around Norway.
