Huset was built in 1951 as a meeting house for the residents of Longyearbyen. As Longyearbyen was originally a “company town” with two class distinctions, Huset was built on “neutral ground” outside the town centre. This legendary building, which is now a leading restaurant, has also served as the local post office, hospital and school.
