The Saga of Njall the Wise mentions Hallgerdur langbrok’s residence there with her husband Glumur Oleifsson, who was killed by the wife’s foster father Tjostolfur at Mt. Tverfell.
Mr. Torfi Bjarnason, who founded the agricultural college at Olafsdalur (1880-1907) in the Dalir District, lived at Varmilaekur before the foundation, and many people wondered why he did not start his educational acitivities there.
