Sundsvall was founded in 1621 west of the current position. In 1649 to 1650 during the reign of Queen Kristina the town was ordered to move closer to the mouth of the river Selånger. This was because the river carried to much sediments and shipping was not longer possible. The town was granted its town charter in 1684 and so it could develop to a commercial town. The town became the centre of one of Sweden's largest timber production areas. Today, Sundsvall has 95.000 residents.
