History of Kungsängstorg

The house was built after the building board approved the drawings in early 1884. The buildings largely followed the drawings. The plan solution was then designed with a large representative room in a file with a hall and chamber towards Kungsängstorg and a more private part, even this in file, with kitchen, jungfrukammare and smaller rooms against the farm.

The central corridor of the day from end to end was not available without communication from room to room. The upper floor was uninhabited, apart from some beams and missing fireplaces.

In 1917, a proposal was made for the reconstruction of architect TH Kellgren. The conversion did not take place according to the proposal, but sometime between 1917 and 1929 the corridor was opened on the ground floor and the wind was decorated.

Ebba Boström, the upper class lady who founded the Samariter hemmet, one of the city's hospitals, owned and lived in the house around the turn of the century. Ebba was also a sister with Erik Gustaf Boström who was Sweden's prime minister at this time. Ebba donated the house to the Samariterhemmet in the late 1800's.

After Ebba's expiration in 1902, the house has been used primarily as a pastor's residence and therefore goes publicly under the name of the "pastoral" The house is the only remnant of the former characteristic 19th century settlement around Kungsängstorg.
