In addition to the trunk, the church of Temme comprises a west tower, which is half-embedded in the west end of the trunk. The sacristy is located in the north cup of the frame room. The church was completed in 1767. A low giveaway on the south side of the frame room was added in 1847, with the goal of expanding the church hall.

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.
