Enhörna Homestead Association
We are active in the parish of Enhörna, a peninsula by
lake Mälaren in
the province of
Stockholm is in the East, the cities
of Mariefred and
Södertälje in the West and Southeast, respectively. The
name Enhörna is likely derived from the shape of the peninsula, a horn that
had to be rounded when going by boat along the Southern shore of the lake.
Enhörna has retained its rural character in spite of being only 45
minutes from Stockholm. Wide fields and stretches of forest create a
beautiful, varied landscape. About 2500 people live in the area, either in
the countryside or in the small settlements such as Ekeby, Stjärna, Aska,
Tuna and Sandviken. Many residents commute to Södertälje or elsewhere in the Stockholm
Enhörna in the past
Enhörna is located at the center of Swedish history, with the viking
trading center Birka on the island of Björkö just a few kilometers away in
lake Mälaren. One intact runestone remains in the parish outside one of out
two 12th century churches.
Since early middle ages there have been two parishes in the area,
Överenhörna (Upper Enhörna) and Ytterenhörna (Outer Enhörna). They were not
merged until the 1950s.
There are three major manors in Enhörna: Ekensberg, Horn and Lövsta.
