Skegrie church was built in the late 1100s. They found remenants of a much older church while renovating the floor in the 1940s. The older church was most likely a stavechurch. If you look to the right in the picture you can see Skegrie dösen wich is and old passage grave from the younger stoneage consisting of 17 stones.
This fine old building started out with one floor and was gradually added to as time went by. Each window in the towers had a sickbed below it but in 1934 the place was too small for the growing community so a new bigger hospital was built. Later on this building was used as a library, music school, museum and refugee camp. Today it stands empty and is currently on the market to be sold off.
