Abstract:During the last few years an EU-project is in progress in the former sawmill community of Marieberg, near the outflow of the Ångerman River. The purpose of the project is to preserve and protect the physical traces of industrial activities at the place, and bring them to life. The project was created and is carried on by inhabitants of the place; in other words, the preserving activities occurred, and still do, in the life-world of people living at the place. My focus is on the consequences of this preserving work. I use a phenomenological approach to elucidate how people from within their lifeworld, not only struggle to preserve the cultural heritage per se, but struggle to preserve the sense of the place as their own.
