The first house on this lot was built in 1882 for Dr. Alexander Stone, a local physician. About 1903 the house was moved to 107 Farrington St. where it is still standing. The present house was constructed in 1905 for George W. Gardner, a real estate and insurance dealer. The house was built for an estimated $28,000. The property was then purchased in 1948 by the Sisters of Saint Benedict and became known as Saint Paul's Priory.

Since 1965, it has served as the home for the Germanic-American Institute and its predecessor organization, the Volksfest Association. The Germanic-American Institute, formerly the Volksfest Association, is a Minnesota non-profit whose mission is to foster appreciation and understanding of the culture, language, arts, and ongoing history of the German speaking peoples through public educational and cultural programs.
