Ivaregga is located in a cultural landscape that                      stretches continuously from Ivaregga to beyond                              the church. The domiciliations in Gata and up by                              the church are built on terraces in the landscape,                            and the tight clusters of houses were founded                                  in connection with the operations of                                                  the smelting-house. This gives the area a distinctive                  stamp, and it is of *national value.

The history of Ivaregga goes back to the end of 1600s,                      when the site became cleared. It was for a long time                          a cottage allotment under Røros copper works.

The first settler´s name was Ole Hansen.
