When Røros Copper Works built the first smelter in 1646 people came to get paid work and settle with their own farms. Røros emerged as a collection of town houses with barns and outbuildings. The mining town has preserved much of its original character with street pattern laid out in the 1600s. Its well-preserved wooden buildings from the 1700s and 1800s was the basis for the inscription on the Unesco World Heritage list in 1980.
