Built in 1883, this Victorian home was originally built by famous architect Cass Gilbert. Gilbert is famous for his soaring vision and classical designs. His designs are evident in landmarks such as the U.S. Supreme Court Building in Washington, D.C., the Woolworth Building in New York City, and Minnesota’s own State Capitol Building.

St. Paul was Gilbert’s hometown and was also the starting point for his career. Gilbert teamed up with several close friends and designed numerous residences, churches and urban structures around the Twin Cities. One of the designed residences happened to be 1044 Wilson Avenue. Gilbert achieved national recognition when he earned the commission to design the state’s Capitol.

The Victorian home has had some remodeling done in the kitchen at some point of its life, but the home retains most of its original integrity. [1]
