This private residence at 254 Latta Avenue was built in the early 1900s. Alexander Bonner Latta moved his family to Ludlow in the mid-1860s and was one of the founding members of the Ludlow City Council. Latta revolutionized fire-fighting techniques by building the world’s first practical steam-powered fire engine in 1853. His son Taylor built this uniquely shaped home on the street named for his family. The Latta House has 12 exterior sides with 10 interior rooms and therefore is called a “duodecagon.” The property extends beyond the house with grounds that take almost an entire city block. The current owner has been rehabbing the home since purchasing it approximately two years ago.
