Grafstad is the oldest and original area of Koningstad, Brunant. It is named after the explorer Adrianus Graf, who founded it in the 1550s. Graf, who had recently discovered Villa Fulvia, settled this area with his family. In 1555, he built a country estate here. In 1558, he persuaded King Anders I to move his summer residence here. After this, many well-to-do people began to move here.

Grafstad is famous for its colorful late 16th and 17th century houses.

During the Carrington era, when the capital was moved here, several old houses were torn down and replaced with newer ones. In the early 1900s, some houses were also torn down to make way for Art Deco/Art Nouveau townhouses. Many citizens voiced their concern at the “destruction” of such a historic neighborhood and it was made a National Monument in 1937.

In 1939, laws were made making it illegal to dismantle historic buildings and to construct anything here taller than the tallest existing building (six stories).
