This is the old "soldier's home" (soldathem), a place for soldiers to do spend their off-duty time. Originally set up to provide something besides drinking. The new one (a bit farther away) was bought and is currently used by Pingstkyrkan i Strängnäs.

A sabre that has belonged to Peter the Great, who gave it to Prince Croij au Eccaud. The prince was subsequently captured by Magnus Stenbock at the decisive Swedish victory at the Battle of Narva and traded the sabre for being allowed to keep his life. The inscription reads "Als König Carl der Zwölfft und seine kleine Macht // Mit Gott der (Russen Heer) hatt in die Flucht gebracht" or, in English "When King Charles XII and his modest might // with God brought the Russian army to flight".
