When Blekinge was conquered by the Swedes in 1658 plans were made to protect the village Bodekull, that later became the town Karlshamn. A naval shipyard and the first fortress were built on Boön. Traces are still to be seen there. But already in 1676 a new fortress on Friesholmen replaced the fortress on Boön. The soldiers were buried at the graveyard on Boön. In the beginning of the 1900th century the graveyard was enclosed and planted with thuja. There is a footpath round the island with information texts.
