The street St. Olavsgate runs in a north-south direction on the west side above the Harstad town centre. Situated at the intersection of the streets Erikstads gate and St. Olavs gate are two residencies from the 19th century. Both houses have features from the Empire style. Ever since the end of the 17th century there have been buildings in this area. Today this area is characterised by older and newer wooden houses, with many well-preserved houses from different periods, and with diverse stylistic features.
