It was supposedly originally located in the middle of the parish, which means that the western border of the parish must have been the island of Jordsand, a hallig about eight kilometers from the coast. It has also previously been inhabited, but the sea gradually devoured it, so that today it has completely disappeared.

Grøngård is a castle ruin in Southern Jutland approx. 8 km east of Tønder. Grøngård was built around 1570 as a hunting lodge by Duke Hans the Elder. It was probably designed by the architect Hercules von Oberberg with models in contemporary Italian-French Renaissance architecture. After Duke Hans' death in 1580, the castle was rarely used, and it was therefore demolished from 1648 to 1653. The castle had the outer dimensions of 16 m x 18 m.
