The rolling hills and oak forest that first drew the wealthy onto the bluff are long gone, as are the great stone mansions of the early years. But spectacular prospects of the city across the hollow and the river remain. Financiers and entrepreneurs Gustav and Adolph Muench enjoyed two of the finest such views. Gustav's house of 1869 faces the city directly, while across Fifth Street, Adolph and Anna caught it with a sidelong glance. This house was designed by German architect Emil W. Ulrici who built almost exclusively for wealthy German immigrants scattered throughout Saint Paul in the 1880s. This is the finest of his surviving residential commissions.
