The property at 1089 Iroquois in Detroit was designed by famous architect, Louis Kamper. Kamper emigrated from Germany in 1880 with his family. Historic Detroit describes him as a
"premier architect and designer among the wealthy in Detroit... In 1913, Kamper’s career took a turn toward a more unusual project, when he won the commission for the Roseland Park Mausoleum at Roseland Cemetery in Berkley, Mich. When it was dedicated in 1914, it was the largest public mausoleum in the U.S. This commission started a succession of projects that would place Kamper in the architectural pantheon of Detroit.
