Historic Wisteria was built in 1901 for one of the founders of Laurel, Silas W. Gardiner. 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.

Wisteria was purchased in 1972 by the Schneider family and opened as a bed and breakfast in 2004.
