Eckerö Post and Customs House was built in 1828 and designed by architect Carl Ludvig Engel. The house replaced the derelict post office in Storby and became Russia's border to the west for many years. During 1950-1994 the building was used by the State of Finland as a holiday home for employees in the postal service. Since 1994 the province of Åland administer this historical building. Today there is a museum of the postroute, several galleries and exhibition spaces, a café and a accommodation.
