The Cunningham House is an unusual and beautifully preserved example of an Art Moderne style home in the South Capitol neighborhood. G.B. Reishus was the architect for the home, which was built in 1940 for the Cunningham family. The Cunninghams owned the historic Cunningham’s store downtown. The home is on the local register and in the South Capitol National Historic Neighborhood.
