This website for the restaurant that now operates at the site (visit link) elucidates:

"Statholdergaarden is a fine old building at the crossroads of Rådhusgate/Kirkegate in Kvadraturen, the heart of Oslo. The house dates from 1640 and was built for Peter Gruner, Master of the Mint.

At the end of the 1600s, the governor Ulrik Fredrik Gyldenløve moved into the house and lived there for 20 years. It was at this time that the foundations were laid for all the festivities that are still held in Statholdergaarden today."
