E.L. & Grace King House (Rockledge) | Built in 1912; Demolished 1987 | Homer, MN
Compiled by Alan Sonneman
In 1931, the Kings remodeled much of the house in the Art Deco Style. Many of the original Prairie Style pieces were removed and put into storage on the property. These were later sold at Sotheby’s in the 1970s. After E.L. King Sr.’s death in 1949, Rockledge was passed on to E.L. King Jr. who allowed the property to fall into disrepair; it was eventually demolished in 1987 just before his death.
