William R. Wolf Residence

522 N.E. 2nd Avenue, Waseca, MN
Architecture: Queen Anne Style
Year Built: 1895

This house was built by a railroad man and was purchased by William R. Wolf. Wolf partnered with his brother-in-law, Henry Habein, to operate Wolf & Habein Department Store & Grocery in Waseca. William’s son, Allen Wolf, was born in this house, worked for his father’s business and continued to live in the house with his wife, Adele until 1999. In the summer of 2000, the house was sold at auction and renovated to become a Bed & Breakfast. It is the best example of Queen Anne-style architecture in the city of Waseca. The house was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.
