The written history of Fållnäs estate begins in 1291, when it was donated to Skokloster abbey by Magnus Johansson (Ängel). The current manor complex was built between 1780 and 1807 according the design of Erik Palmstedt. It consists of several annexes, but the planned main building was never completed. Today Fållnäs hosts an art gallery with a cafe.

Frösö Runestone

Frösöstenen is the northern-most raised runestone in the world and Jämtland's only runestone. It originally stood at the tip of ferry terminal on the sound between the island of Frösön and Östersund. The stone dates to between 1030 and 1050. It has now been relocated to the lawn in front of the local county seat due to the construction of a new bridge, between 1969 and 1971, on the original site.

Frösö runestone inscription means: Austmaðr, Guðfastr's son, had this stone raised and this bridge built and Christianized Jämtland. Ásbjörn built the bridge. Trjónn and Steinn carved these runes.
