About Håcksvik church
Håcksvik church dates from the beginning of the Middle Ages, however as its condition deteriorated over time, a new church was built in 1826. This is when the current church replaced the old one.

During the 1940s, the church was renovated and the remains of a young woman were found under the floor. She was estimated to have been buried there around the 17th century. No one knows who she is, but there is an old legend about the bride who broke her neck on the way to her wedding, perhaps its her?
