    According to the Swedish Wikipedia Strömfors ("White water stream") started out making anchors and grapnels using trip hammers and thr stream nearby. Later they were given permission to produce wrought iron bars. It changed owners many times until the director for East India Trading Co. bought it, Claes Grill, whose family owned it for 150 years. In the late 1800s they started making less anchors and a modern industry was being built up alongside the ironworks. And in 1874 Strömfors got connected to the main rail way system. Nowadays it's Sweden's largest Listed building(s). Culture preservation. There was a whole society around the ironworks. Nowadays there's a restaurant in the railway station and most buildings are still standing, blacksmith's quarters and so on.
