Frovi is a town in Lindesbergs kommun in Örebro County in Västmanland ,on the side of Lake Väringen south central Sweden.

Theodor Tersmeden was a mill owner near Frövi in Näsby Parish. His company Hinsebergs gods needed a road over Näsby Heden (Näsby Heath) to the railway station and so he paid for a road to be built across it. As he paid for the road, he was allowed by the Parish to levy a toll for the use of the road for 5 years from 1867-1872 of 3 öre. This was paid at the gate to Frövi railway station where the road began.
