The house was built in 1882-83 utilizing an early Greek Revival form with some Gothic Revival details. Willa Cather's introduction to French literature came about as a result of her friendship with Mr. and Mrs Charles Wiener. In her short story, "Old Mrs. Harris," Cather describes the Wiener house as the home of the Rosens.
