Description

Oskarström is the second largest locality in Halmstad Municipality, Halland County, Sweden, with 4,071 inhabitants in 2010. It is situated along the Nissan river about 15 km north-east of Halmstad.Its name comes from Oscar Björkman from Gothenburg, who in 1844 bought land here and erected a sawmill.HistoryPrehistoryDuring the Iron Age farming was the main occupation. As evidence of this, there are village grave fields with Iron Age dolmen, a stone circle and a trident. The villages Mared and Espered were probably founded in the early Middle Ages and were approximately equal until the mid-1880s. During the Nordic Seven Years' War (1563-1570) the Swedes, led by commander Charles de Mornay, fought against the forces of Danish King Frederick II at the Battle of Mared, where the present Oskarström is now located. In memory of this the Halland Museum Association erected a memorial stone in 1923.Oskarström Municipal SocietyIn 1885, Oscarström was purchased by Isaac Andrew and Carl Wilhelm Wallberg. They established a hat factory in 1886. In 1888 the factory moved to Wallenberg AB in Halmstad.
