TitleQ.: What Can You Tell Me about the Loose Mansion?
AbstractThe Jacob L. Loose mansion at 101 E. Armour Blvd. was sold last November to a local non-profit foundation. The Integratism Foundation bought the building from the Resolution Trust Corp. for $390,000. The 85-year-old mansion was restored as an office building in 1984 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It contains 18,700 square feet and has a three-level, 2,400-square-foot carriage house. The house was built in 1909 by Mr. Loose, founder of the Loose-Wiles Biscuit Co. The name of the company was later changed to Sunshine Biscuits Inc. Loose lived in the four-level house until his death in 1923.
