A short distance north of the church is just over meter high walls of the medieval church which preceded the new church.
When the congregation grew there were built a new church which was consecrated in 1801. The new church has the famous church builder Simon Geting as master builder and it is the first in Ådalen which was built in neoclassical style. In the churchyard is a memorial to the victims of the tragic Ådalshändelserna. Gudmundrå church acts as road church during the summer.
