Wheeler, an attorney working for Phoebe Apperson Hearst, lived in this Pacific Heights residence. When he first began to relocate to the Bay Area from New York, architect John Galen Howard (1864-1931) attended a Christmas party at the Wheeler Residence. (See Sally B. Woodbridge, John Galen Howard and the University of California, [Berkeley: University of California Press, 2002], p. 57.)

Polk's design for the 3-story, Neo-classical Charles S. Wheeler House appeared in the 05/27/1899 issue of the American Architect and Building News.
