Eidsborg Stave Church was built in the 13th century, it is dedicated to St. Nicolaus (or Nikuls as he is known as in Telemark), the guardian angel of travellers. A legend say that when the church was about to be built, the people disagreed about where it should be erected. Construction finally began, but the next morning all of the tools had disappeared! They were found - on the spot where the Church stands today.
