HistoryEdit

The building was built in the 1640s on the initiative of Per Brahe the Younger (1602–1680) and was later rebuilt several times. The house received its current appearance with towers and gothic windows in the 1860s according to drawings by the architects Fredrik Wilhelm Scholander (1816–1881) and Thor Medelplan (1832-1863).
