The old Alehouse

Tingshuset

This is "Sotholms Härads Tingshus" in Västerhaninge. Built between 1731 and 1734. Then a pub (until 1844) and the district court, which it served as until 1916. It was also used as a post office, shop and as a private recidence. Today it is a museum, library and meeting place for the local historical association and a few other groups.
