Originally the wooden church of Anttola was built in Juva in 1729. After the new stone church was completed in 1863, the parish of Juva donated their old church to Anttola. It was disassembled and brought to Anttola along lakes between 1869-1870.

The church was situated to the donated site and inaugurated again in 1871. The pulpit and crucifix, made in 1660s, were transferred together with church. The present outfit is mainly from the end of 19th century. The next big renovation was designed by Alvar Aalto in 1926.

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.
