THE CHURCH IN HÚSAR

x

There have been churches in Húsar for centuries, but they have not always been located where the church stands today. A church once stood to the north of Gjógvaraá, but it was rebuilt south of the river after the river overflowed and carried the church out to sea in the 1770s. The church of Húsar was consecrated in 1920, and it is a beautiful and noble church distinguishable from other churches built in the same period. It is said that the church was so expensive that the construction emptied out the church funds of the Northern Islands parish and that the construction impacted church funds in the entire country.
