History[edit | edit source]

Färnebo which was also known as Värmlandsberg was populated with the discovery of iron ore in the area. This probably happened when King Erik of Pommern sent out notice of "jernberghet i Wermelande" in 1413. By the 1500's a wooden church had been built by Kalhyttan on the west side of Färnsjön. Towards the end of the 1500's a few farms had been moved over to the newly created Nyed parish. When Filipstad was founded in 1611 the church building was moved there and Färnebo became the "Filipstad Rural Parish" to Filipstad city parish. The old wooden church burned in 1694. Another wood chuch was built which also burned down in 1775. The replacement church building was built of stone which stands today. The parish of Kroppa broke from Färnebo in 1624. This was followed by Gåsborn in 1693, and Nordmark in 1731. On Jan. 1, 1971 Färnebo was combined with Filipstad.
