“Tvinden paa Voss”. Drawing from 1870. (Voss Triade, owner: Riksantikvaren (Ark nr. B280)).
Tvinne lies by the magnificent and beautiful Tvinnefossen. One of Norway’s best known actors, Lard Tvinde, grew up on this farm. One of his ancestors was David Hustvedt, farmer at Hustvedt, a mountain farm on the other side of the valley, above the farm Gjøstein. David Hustvedt was the first mayor in Voss County, following the introduction of the laws on local administration in 1837.
The settlements in this part of the rural community are old. At Gjøstein several rock paintings are easily visible from the road at the other side of the river.
