Wathne’s House is a historical building in Fáskrúðsfjörður. It’s origin can be traced back to 1882 when Otto Wathne started fishing herring from Fáskrúðsfjörður and it is now the oldest building in the village. It was originally a „seahouse“ where sailors tended their nets and processed their catch, built at the end of a wharf jutting out in front of it. It has had many roles in connection with fisheries, such as a fish processing, salt storage and a workshop. During World War II, half a dozen British soldiers lived in the house and a few decades ago, a new section was added to it but it has now been reduced in size and renovated to its original look. It is 106 square meters in size.
