Directly north of the Henry L. Corbett property from yesterday’s post was the Elliot R. Corbett house at 243 W. Park (now 1119 SW Park). The two brothers’ properties shared the block bounded by SW Park and 10th, Main and Madison Streets. Both would build homes in the Dunthorpe area around 1915 and the Masonic Temple building would replace these two homes.
Henry Ladd Corbett built this fine house at 253 W. Park (old address numbering system). The property covered the entire south half of the block between SW Park and 10th, Main and Madison Streets (this view looks west from Park). The 1925 Mark Building (formerly Masonic Temple) now covers the site. This home was just a few blocks from grandfather Henry Winslow Corbett’s home (see yesterday’s post).
