Nesstofa

Nesstofa is the first residence of the Icelandic Director of Public Health, made from stone in 1761-1767. There was a public dispensary in Nesstofa from 1772, as well as working midwives. The building became private property when the two official posts were moved to Reykjavík around 1830. Nesstofa is now managed by the Medical  History Museum of Iceland.
