Nordre Trondhjems amt was an Norwegian amt (today county) that was established in 1804 by dividing Trondhjems amt into two: Nordre Trondhjems amt and Søndre Trondhjems amt.[1][2][3]

The first governor, Caspar Conrad Rafn, had a seat in Verdal according to the royal instructions. His successor Christen Elster settled on Inderøy, so in the years 1818-1894 Sund gård on Inderøy was the amt seat. When Ole Anton Qvam took office in 1894 he lived on the Gjævran fram in Egge (now part of Steinkjer), and took the office with him there. Amt governor residence Eggeli, was designed by architect Axel Guldahl and built in 1919 under the leadership of the then amt governor Halvor Bachke Guldahl. Until 1945 this functioned both as an official residence and offices for the amt administration.

From 1 January 1919 the amt was renamed Nord-Trøndelag county and from 1945 the county governor had offices in Steinkjer.
