The exhibition spotlights the time when Boden’s garrison used horses as means of transportation. A time that has left its mark on Boden, which continues to be the most equestrian city in Sweden, with a prominent harness racing and lots of riding horses. Part of the exhibition room is preserved as it appeared in its original condition, that is: as an oats warehouse. The building, designed by architect Erik Josephson, was built in 1911 – 1912. Storage of feed came to an end in 1950 and in 2001 the government designated Havremagasinet a historic building.
Havremagasinet is part of the town’s garrison and it is Boden’s largest building: six floors at a total of 3,600 square metres. The bakery, the Mill and the Victual Building are also designated historical buildings that will help future generations to understand their history.
