Ingerd Ottesdatter (a.k.a. Lady Inger of Oestraat) was one of the manor’s most significant and colourful owners. She played an important part in Norwegian history, notably in the implementation of the Reformation. It was during her time at Austrått in the 16th century that the main building was raised. From 1721, there were bourgeois owners of the estate. Since 1919, Austrått has been national property. Although much has been lost over the centuries, great cultural values ​​have been handed down to our time.
