History

William Hamm built this solid house for his new bride, Marie Scheffe, in the same year that the Hamm Brewery underwent a dramatic expansion. He hired Allen H. Stem, a St. Paul architect whose reputation as a designer exceeded Cass Gilbert's until the state capitol competition. Conceived in a neoclassical spirit, the house displays Stem's penchant for monumental exteriors with exquisitely crafted interiors. Verandas with fine balustrades once faced both streets. [1] [1]

On June 15,1933, William Hamm was kidnapped near the brewery by the Barker-Karpis gang.[1]
