Far back in history, the Ölanders quarried and worked the limestone and alum shale, which is clearly visible in the landscape. The alum works in Degerhamn is, by Öland’s standards, a big works setting dating from the early 18th century. To this day, there is an old works street with workmen’s dwellings and industrial remains.
