This turned out to be a very fun project. I learned a lot of interesting things. Here are some of the highlights to my study.
A waterworks, city hall, and a gym was built in the late 1930’s. In 1942 the old LEGO factory was burnt down, but a new one was built immediately. The railroad was extended to the Lego factory in 1946. Lego stared selling plastic bricks in 1949.
A large park with a playground, toboggan hill, and lake was created by LEGO in 1959. The Billund airport was opened in 1962 as LEGO’s private airport. In 1968, LEGOLAND opened. Thanks to LEGO’s growth Billund experienced a growing population.
