Hornemansgården located in Kongens gate 7 is one of Trondheim's large 18th century wooden pals and fills the entire quarter between the square, Kongens gate, Vår Lady cemetery and Presidentveita. The quarter originated as a result of Cicignon's regulation after the city fire in 1681. Here Petter Sylow, the agent's on the county writer, erected a farm that burned in 1708. The entire quarter was left uninhabited until 1720, when Stadsfysikus and Lagmann Paul Dons (1689–1748) bought all Auction, except the eastern part towards the cemetery. Dons later took over the rest of the quarter and erected several other buildings. The main building still exists as the ground floor of the current Hornemansgården. There was a building on one floor along Kongens gate from the eastern main entrance to the corner towards the square, with a side wing towards the square. Double cuisine walls at both ends confirm that this house was preserved and built when the entire farm was totally changed later. The farm that Dons listed was described in the fire rate from 1766, the year after a new owner had taken over:

Under renoveringen ble parken tilpasset de historiske elementene som opprinnelige akser, vegetasjon og gjerder. Utformingen består av en sirkulær plass med en fontene med benker og beplantning. Rundt fontenen og gjennom parken er det etablert gangsoner som både består av grusstier og skiferganger. Parkens kongemonument over Kong Olav V er utformet av Harald Wårvik.
