The Höjen­torp esta­te dates back to 1284 when it belong­ed to the bishopric.

It even­tu­al­ly beca­me a royal esta­te. Mag­nus Gabri­el de la Gar­die had a cast­le built here, which unfor­tu­na­tely bur­ned down in 1722. The only part of the cast­le that remains is the cel­lar. The old cast­le gar­dens are home to lar­ge bro­ad­le­af tre­es and gar­den plants like colum­bi­nes and mar­ta­gon lili­es growing wild. The esta­te is a lis­ted buil­ding. This text has been pro­vi­ded by the County Admi­nist­ra­ti­ve Board of Väs­ter­göt­land.
