"Evidence suggests that this house was built ca. 1864 by Anthony Waldman a Czech immigrant who arrived in St. Paul with his German-born wife in 1863. Waldman was one of only two grain merchants in St. Paul and maintained his business in the West Seventh Street area. In 1873 he became a laborer and worked in several local industries until 1878 when he joined with his neighbor, George Eaton, to establish a grain trading and transport business in downtown St. Paul. In 1871 Waldman moved from this limestone home to a wood frame house which he built one block away at 457 Smith Avenue"

(Historic Sites Survey)



"When the house was built by Anton Waldman, the German-born proprietor of a flour and feed store on Fort Road, its address was 46 Forbes Avenue. In time, the address was changed to 102 Forbes Avenue, 103 Forbes Avenue, 103 Smith Avenue, and finally 445 N. Smith Avenue. Waldman only lived here a few years; in 1871 he built another house down the block […]. The present occupants of the limestone house, the Dreylings, have lived there for many years. There are, I believe, only five or six limestone houses left in the city, although the rock was once a common construction material" (Empson, Donald)
