The local architecture is also considered to be special, and the visitor can find many examples of these uniquely-styled timbered farmhouses and their adjacent outhouses which have survived the centuries.  

Longerak is also home to technological history in the form of a power station from 1915.  The power station, with its magnificent main building, is still producing hydro-electric power from the 300 meter high waterfall.
