In Eksjö you will find an assortment of homes, both new constructions and old, pretty bungalows, flats for rent and co-operative flats. The town of Eksjö is perhaps most renowned for its protected old timbered houses. The Old Town is alive and vital. Here it is quite possible to find flats in a 17th century building.


Mariannelund is the easternmost village of the municipality, bordering on the municipality of Vimmerby. It is a business centre of trade and has a civic hall called "Emilkraften", and a highly developed municipal service.
