Long Description:
Siden 1701 har der været teglværk ved Nivågård. I området findes masser af ler og det var let at transportere de færdige mursten via Øresund til København. Udover denne ringovn lå fandtes der i området også tilsvarende ovne i Niverød og Sølyst. Ovnen blev tegnet af den tyske ingeniør Friedrich Eduard Hoffmann og det specielle design gjorde det muligt at brænde mursten med en stor effektivitet.
Ovnen fungerede fra 1870 og frem til 1967. Produktionen stoppede i 1981. I dag er teglværket lukket, men fungerer som museum.
