This Italianate duplex built by John Tintinger in 1881 may have been the first of its kind in Appleton. In 1884 Andreas Kuhn, tailor, farmer and Civil War veteran, purchased the houses for retirement income. Shortly before his death at the Milwaukee Solders' Home in 1902 Kuhn deeded the two dwellings to separate individuals.

By 1910 retired Grand Chute farmer and washerman for the "Uneeda Damp Wash Laundry Co.", John S. Hoh, bought the south home and used the rental income to support his invalid daughter Helen. The Hoh family lived next door at 422 S. State St.

The houses were separated after 1913 to generate better rents. In 1926, Helen's sister Minnie Hoh Gehring acquired the north house as well to manage and support her sister's needs. A building permit was issued in that year to Minnie's husband Andrew Gehring to remodel the residences and build 2 garages at a cost of $6,000.

Though Minnie owned the homes for fifty years, she and Helen never lived there. Today, these buildings, each containing two separate living units, remain under one ownership.

These homes are listed in the 1978 Historic Building Survey.
