Large granite stone in Storegade
On the small lawn stands a granite stone about 2 m high. It has not been possible to find any information about the stone in books or elsewhere, but some elderly citizens of Allinge say that the stone was erected in the early 1950s by the then owner of the land as a protest against impending plans to build a turning area for lorries.
The turning area was used during the winter months when the city streets were slippery with snow and ice, making it difficult for drivers to get to and from the waiting room down at Kirkepladsen. But the owner was against the proposal and it is said that he, in protest, would have erected the stone on his land and thus prevent the plans from being carried out. The turnaround was never built and in the mid-1950s the area was changed to resemble what we know today. However, this story has not been possible to confirm.
A better explanation, however, is that the white house adjacent to the site was previously occupied by a stonemason and that it was the stonemason who had the stone erected.
If you look at the building on the opposite side of the road, you will see the old Kajbjerggård dairy from around 1900. The red brick building was built in 1905 as a residence for the dairy manager. Today, the house and part of the old dairy are converted into apartments.
