1. Brantingska Huset / The Branting House Marker
Inscription. Hjalmar Branting (1860 - 1925) bodde tillsammans med sin familj i detta hus under i stort sett hela sitt liv. Branting var statsminister för den första Socialdemokratiska regeringen i Sverige 1920 och fick Nobels fredspris 1921. Han var även en drivande kraft bakom grundandet av Nationernas Förbund.

1861-1862 lät Hjalmar Brantings far, professor Gabriel Branting uppföra detta hus i fyra plan samt en envånings gårdsbyggnad. Huset, som då ansågs ligga så gott som på landet, övergick vid faderns död 1881 via fideikommiss i Hj. Brantings ägo. Byggnaden förblev i familjens ägo till 1972 då den övertogs av socialdemokratiska partistyrelsen som ägde huset fram till 1993.

1914 gjordes en genomgripande ombyggnad. Genom påbyggnad av två våningar och ny gårdsflygel fick huset sitt nuvarande utseende. Även interiört gjordes stora förändringar där bland annat mindre lägenheter slogs ihop så att det blev en stor lägenhet på varje våningsplan. 1948 gjordes en fasadrenovering och 1996 renoverades hela huset.

the founding of the League of Nations.

Hjalmar Branting's father, Professor Gabriel Branting, built this four-level house and one-storey farm building in 1861-1862. The house, which was then considered to be virtually in the country, was transferred in 1881 to Hjalmar's ownership after his father's death. The building remained in the family's possession until 1972, when it was taken over by the Social Democratic Party Board, which owned the house until 1993.

The building was thoroughly renovated in 1914, giving the house its current look, with the addition of two floors and a new yard wing. The interior was also greatly altered, such that each floor was transformed into one large apartment. The facade was renovated in 1948, and again in 1996 the whole house was renovated.
