Thorskogs Grand Manor
"The history of Thorskogs Grand Manor House dates back to 1249, when the Norwegian King Haakon Haakonson the Elder, and the Swedish Earl, Birger Jarl, met and sat down at Torskebacke (the Norwegian name of Thorskog) and signed the ‘permanent’ peace treaty between Norway and Sweden. However, there was only peace for a short time, and it would be another 400 years before it and the County of Bohuslän became Swedish in 1658.
In 1730 Olof Wenngren arrived at Thorskog and founded a business.
He built the original Manor House on the site of today's house. He also laid out the ponds and the park. Mr Wenngren was highly honoured, became an aristocrat and in his will he left the right for the Manor to carry his heraldic sign.
Famous guests & Prize awarded
Over the years Thorskogs Grand Manor House has been the home of numerous prestigious guests including; George & Barbara Bush, Michail Gorbachov, John Major, Benazir Bhutto, and F.W de Klerk.

Today's Thorskogs Grand Manor
The Thorskogs Grand Manor House you will see today was built in 1892 by shipyard magnate Petter Larson. In 1865 he founded a shipyard on the Manor House side of the river Göta Älv. The shipyard was very profitable and made him a rich man."
"Thorskogs Grand Manor was bought by the current owners, Lena and Tommy Jonsson in 1986 and they transformed the slumbering old Manor into a stylish oasis for stressed business people and admirers of the good life."
