If things had been different Krusagården could have been demolished and turned into a department store! There were plans for this after World War II. This was an important trading place in the 1770s thanks to its location by the town’s northern customs point. The homestead has also housed a distillery, tavern, shop and tannery. The association Krusagården is now in charge of activities and Eksjö Tourist Agency has occupied a strategic place on the ground floor for some years now. An oak planted by Gustav VI Adolf in 1954 is in the courtyard.
