Inscription.  This greek revival home was built in 1857 for brothers John and Philip Peter Gundlach who ran the Monroe Brewery. John served as Columbia's third mayor. The house is a 12 story brick building; its corbeled brick frieze is representative of the decorative brickwork commonly designed by German immigrants. The entrance features a classical pediment supported by ionic columns and cast iron pilasters. The door is flanked by two windows with broken scroll pediment lintels. The house's gable roof features three gabled dormers on the front and back sides. The house was added to the National Register of Historic Places on December 18, 1978.
