In 1940, through bombing over three days, 23-25 April, most of the houses on Vangen were destroyed and left in ruins, as well as several houses in the surrounding area. Both explosive and incendiary bombs were used, which did maximum damage as the vast majority of the houses were made of wood.

here is a little photo collection from the bombing bombing voss — ImgBB

Over 3,000 years ago, hunters and herders came here and found valleys rich in crops, waters rich in fish and mountain expanses with a rich animal and bird life. This natural wealth formed the basis for a rich agricultural culture that is alive today. Traces of the different eras can be found around the villages, for example Olavskrossen, which Olav the saint - “Olva den hellige” erected in 1023

The village got external connections early on. The armed forces set up training grounds on Bømoen, roads and railways opened up for tourism and high schools of many kinds turned the village into a school town. Towards the end of the 19th century, the first small industrial companies were founded. Vossevangen was razed to the ground during bombing in 1940, but was later rebuilt as a modern small town.

The land and the forest have traditionally been the most important source of income, but Voss also has a diverse industry. Trade, tourism and, moreover, various forms of service provision are nevertheless the industries that provide work for the largest part of those who live in the municipality.
