It was in this house, "of unreasonable size" as the owner Carsten Anker himself put it, the Eidsvoll men were gathered drafting the Constitution of 1814. Shortly after this eventful spring of 1814, the Eidsvoll building became important as a symbol of Norwegian independence. In 1851 the building became our first national cultural monument .

The Eidsvoll Manor has great architectural qualities. The house is buildt in timber, and when it was finished approx. 1770 it was the largest wooden building in Norway. The history of the Anker family's life and manorial home meets the visitors, in addition to the history of the Norwegian Constitution.

After the building was turn over to the state in 1851 the Eidsvoll Manor has been restored several times. In 2011 the building was closed to the public in order to restore it for the Constitution Bicentennial in 2014.

The Wergeland House, just below Eidsvollsbygningen, is a public center, with a modern and engaging exhibition about the Constitution, 17 May and democracy. Here you can find Café Standpoint, serving quality coffee, tasty pastries and lunch. Pilgrims are offered free black coffee.
