The real history starts at the beginning of the 18th century when Olof Antonsson was born. He built Sundsbergs Gård and after his dead his son Bengt Reinhold inherited the mansion and seven other estates. He was a rich man and fell in love with the wife of the judge Gustafva Sandelin. She was the model of the major’s wife in Gösta Berlings Saga. Bengt Antonsson died unmarried and all his property was left to the judge couple in Öjervik.
A fire 1893 destroyed the mainbuilding. The family moved to the wing which today is a museum. The last privat owners, the dentist Tore Sjöqvist and his wife Birgitta lived in the wing till the new house was ready to move in 1978. The couple donated the mansion to Sunne Community. Today it is managed by the foundation Sundsbergs Gård.
