History of the lock
The lockkeeper's cottage was built between 1898 and 1999. Three generations of the Ringström family lived and worked here in Carlsborg, starting with Johan Melcher Ringström in 1881 and ending with Dag Eilert Ringström in 1979. By then, the Ringström family had been in charge of the lock for 98 years.
