Björkbodan historical iron works and manor is a historical area, which has been used for refining iron for agricultural and household needs since 19th century. The iron ore was transported from Dalsbruk's iron works to Björkboda by using horse carriages. From the beginning of the 1900 century, locks and bushings are made in the area. The factory was used for manufacturing locks until 2019. The factory was operated by Assa Abloy.

The manor was built as the home for factory director. Other smaller buildings were built for factory workers. The iron works area is quite dense, neighbors are close by a comfortable way. Yard is grassed, bright and spacious. The nearest neighboring house is right next door, entrance to the house from the other side of the house, usually no disturbance. There is also a large former storage nearby, used now as a machine shelter for the manor.

Nowadays, several forestry and agricultural activities, horse business (big new manège and riding trails), farm tourism and hunting trips for large groups are done in Björkboda manor.
