This was the largest shipping port for the German company Stenzel & Co from the late 19th century. Stone was transported here from several quarries.
The company Stenzel & Co started to manufacture paving stones with machines in the early 20th century.
If you follow the path slightly to the south you pass traces from these machines. When it was revealed that the company had stolen the patent for the design they were punished with a fee of 70 000 SEK, and had to rebuild the machines. The factory was closed down in the late 1910s.
Stenzel & Co went bankrupt in 1927. The assets were taken over by Förenade Granit AB in Gothenburg, who re-started an industry at Marseholm in the 1940s. The factory was closed down in 1954.
The harbor of Marseholm is now used as a marina.
