Next to the pharmacy you will find the Memorial stone of Kumlingeslaget (The battle of Kumlinge). The residents of Kumlinge wanted to raise a memorial stone in 1908 as a 100 years celebration of the victory from the battle. The Russian government wouldn’t allow it but in 1920, after Finlands independence, the Memorial stone was raised on Fälberget.
