History of Rosendal Avlsgård

In the 1850s, the Heir to the estate Baroniet Rosendal, Marcus Gerhard Hoff Rosenkrone, (1823-1896) established Rosendal Avlsgard as an example farm for sheep and horses. The farm was of major importance for agricultural rearing and breeding work in the district. In 1875, “Rosendal Høiere Almue Skule” was established. Teaching was financed by the Heir, who taught foreign languages, history, physics and geography.

Fruehuset (“the Ladies’ house”) was built around 1860 to the widowed wife of the priest, Karen Unger, and the daughters Pauline, Bolette and Nanna. Nanna was later married to Hans E. Kinck, while the three single women stayed in Fruehuset under the protection of Marcus Gerhard Hoff-Rosenkrones to his death. The house later got the name Fruehuset after mrs. Karen Unger. Marcus Gerhard and his siblings got a special relationship with vicar Elias B. Unger at Malmanger clergy house, and his daughter Kathinka, who was Marcus Gerhard’s great love. Unfortunately, Kathinka died in 1853, only 18 years old. After the death of Kathinka, Marcus Gerhard never fell in love again.
