When you look at the old maps dating back from 1728 you can see that this place was named Carls Bastion. It was used as a black powder depot. Black powder depots were constructed in 1688 and 1690, they are the oldest structures at Holmen. The powder depots were placed far away from other areas since they often blew up back then. Especially during battle, and this would cause massive destruction.
