This wooden house in the historic Haga district dates back to 1849. The Setterbergska kvarteret is one of two houses left by the trader R.G. Setterberg.

There were five houses all in all, this and the neighbouring building are built by Setterberg.  He and his family lived in this house.

Furniture trader C. F. Hanson took over the house in the 1920s and the ground floor has housed different shops. The Grand Cafe took over and was in business from mid 1930's until the 1980's.

The buildings were renovated in 1992-1993.
