- George Epperson House
- The George Epperson House is a house located southeast of Jerome, Idaho, United States. Construction on the house was initiated in 1912 by George Epperson and his sons, who completed the foundation, basement, and several of the walls. The house remained unfinished for several years; additional construction was done in 1922, but the house was not completed until 1929, when George's son Ivan acquired the money to finish the building. The bungalow style house was built with lava rock; the dark rock and dark roof of the house are contrasted by the white trim and details. The house gained local notoriety in 1942 when owner Reuben Stoller was found dead in its basement; his murder was never solved. (read more...)
