Picture of the month

Society for local history wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy new year.

The last picture of 2021 shows the old chestnut tree in the roundabout. Originally it was planted in Enggården’s courtyard. Enggården was one of the original 8 Billund farms and was placed where you now find the new shopping area. The chestnut tree was planted about 1895. It was moved to its placement in the roundabout in 1986.
