329 Summit Avenue: Dr. Charles A. Wheaton House Built in 1895 (1893 according to the National Register of Historic Places and according to Ramsey County property tax records); Romanesque Revival/Queen Anne Rectilinear/Victorian Romanesque in style.

The structure is a two story, 4919 square foot, 14 room, six bedroom, four bathroom, one half-bathroom, brick house, with a detached garage. The house was built for $15,000. This structure is listed on the National Register of Historic Places as part of the historic Hill District. Minnesota Historical Society records indicate that Charles A. Wheaton resided at this address from 1896 to 1911. The 1909 University of Minnesota Catalogue indicates that Charles A. Wheaton, M.D., an emeritu professor of surgery, resided at this address. Charles A. Wheaton, one of the 12 children of Charles Augustus Wheaton (18091882) and Ellen Douglas Birdseye Wheaton, was a physician and surgeon who published the paper "The Clinical Recognition of Malignancy in Tumors" in the 1894 Journal of the American Medical Association and who was the president of the American Academy of Railway Surgeons in 1900. Charles A. Wheaton (1853- ) was born in Syracuse, N.Y., moved to Minnesota in 1861, and graduated from Carlton College in 1870. After a stint as an express manager for the Northern Pacific RailRoad, Wheaton went to Harvard Medical School and returned to St. Paul in 1877, where he became a partner of Dr. J.H. Stewart, was Professor of the Practice of Surgery and Clinical Surgery at the University of Minnesota Medical School in 1893, and eventually became the chair of the Surgery Department at the University of Minnesota Medical School. Wheaton married Ursula C. Stewart, the daughter of his medical partner, in 1879 and the couple had three children, Charles A. Wheaton, Katherine Wheaton, and Marion Wheaton. Charles Augustus Wheaton, Sr., was a major figure in the central New York state abolitionist movement and in the Underground Railroad, was a hardware merchant, was a railroad speculator, was a member of the Minnesota House of Representatives from 1867 until 1868, and was a founder of Carlton College in Northfield, Minnesota. Ellen Douglas Birdseye Wheaton (1816-1858) was the daughter of Victory Birdseye (1782-1853) and Electa Beebe Birdseye (1793-1860), shared her husband's abolitionist sympathies, and is best-known for a diary she kept from 1850 to 1858, detailing her life.

Charles Augustus Wheaton was the husband of Ursula Stewart Wheaton ( -1943,) died of interstitial nephritis, and resided at 442 Summit Avenue in 1916 according to Oakland Cemetery records.
