History

Kristvalla became a parish in 1656 taking parts of Dörby and Förlösa parishes with the church near Duvetorp. In 1795 Inglesryd was added which came from Kläckeberga parish. With the reform of 1862 the new Kristvalla landskommun took over civil matters. In 1952 this kommun was absorbed into Madesjö kommun. Rosenberg (1882) reports a population of 1,951 but by year 2000 the population was only 780.

Ljungbyån (river) forms a southern boundry of an area marked by woodland and some rolling hills. Agriculture and forestry activities provided most of the economic activity in the late 1800s. A cold-water health spa attracts people at Kristvallabrunn. Three school houses in the late 1800s.
