One of Blönduós’ main characteristics is that the town is split into two parts by the glacial river Blanda, for which it is named. The old part of town (“Gamli bærinn”), including many original houses from the late 19th and early 20th century, is located on the south side of the river.
The Sheriff's House
The house was originally built in 1900 as the official residence of Sheriff Gísli Ísleifsson. It was later sold to Pétur Pétursson from Gunnsteinsstaðir, who ran an extensive store in Blönduós for two decades.
In 1943, hotelier Snorri Arnfinnsson bought the building and started running a hotel there.
