The house, built in 1892-94 by architect John Granville Meyers and commissioned by German immigrant and Brewer Christian Heurich. It is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The first two floors of the house are preserved, and include most of the original furnishings. In 1956, Heurich's widow deeded the house to the Historical Society of Washington, D.C..
