|Horace Dodge Jr's 10,000 sq ft. home in Grosse Pointe, MI. It was purchased in 1923 at a cost of $650,000 by his mother Anna for Horace as a wedding present. Horace lived here throughout the year spending his time between Grosse Pointe and Palm Beach until his death in 1963. Known as "Gray House" it was on the shore of Lake St. Clair in Grosse Pointe, MI. To the right of this house was the first "Rose Terrace" built by Horace Sr., in 1910. The original owner of Gray House was Charles Swift, who committed suicide here by hanging himself before the Dodge family purchased it. Under the lawn facing the lake was a tunnel leading to an underground room. Before its demolition in 1985, Gray house was owned by one of the Dodge heirs. The lot is currently a quiet tree lined subdivision. |
