"Albert Wunderlich was the president of the Security Mercantile Agency and was a commissioner of education. The architects of this house have not been documented but it contains several unmistakable signs of Bentley and Hausler's first work. The contours and fenestration are plainly influenced by Walter Burley Griffin's 'concrete bungalow' designs in suburban Chicago. This house is a major landmark in the area and is one of the finest and most intact Prairie Style houses built in all of St. Paul" (Historic Sites Survey)
