You can not miss Karleby Tingshus when traveling along the RV70. The carpeted house with a capped canopy crowned by a bell tower was commissioned for the winter tent 1688. For two centuries it was used for trials and there was also a dungeon in the cellar of the house. There, among other things, Elg-Kajsa, the last one who was sentenced to death in the courthouse, was kept there. She mixed arsenic in the bread and poisoned both husband, mother and daughter. In June 1839, she was beheaded at the execution place in Bärby forest, a half mile away for the Salah hold.
The cut-in marble display above the entrance is reminiscent of the house's previous use. It is in Latin, but it means Do the right thing and fear no one
Today, Karleby Tingshus is used as a gathering room for Simtuna Hembygdsförening, which usually has coffee serving and crafts exhibition during the summer.
