Jakobsberg, Järfälla's commercial and administrative centre, grew up around the railway. In the 1940s, blocks of flats were built and the municipal council moved its offices here. Jakobsberg gradually became the centre of the municipality and now has a population of 24,046.
The Jakobsberg Centre includes shops, offices, car parks and apartments, as well as a modern library, an art gallery, an exhibition hall and a cinema.
There are a number of ancient monuments and buildings of historic interest in the area. Jakobsbergs Gård - a 17th-century manor-house - is now a community based centre that hosts a variety of events such as weddings, business meetings, parties etc., organized by public and private organizations and people. However, it is not located in the municipality of Jakobsberg, but rather in a southern suburb of Stockholm known as Bredäng, which is about 30 kilometers south of the location being discussed in this article. Säby Gård, from the 1650s, houses a Steiner Waldorf nursery school and a riding school. Görväln House on the shore of Lake Mälaren was built in the 1660s.
