Wisteria was built in 1901 for one of the founders of Laurel, Silas Wright Gardiner and his wife Louisa. He was one of the owners of Eastman - Gardiner Company, Laurel's largest and most successful lumber company.
Wisteria is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as a pivotal structure and is located on prestigious North Fifth Avenue lined with majestic oak trees in the heart of the Historic District.
