Next Stop: The Ternary Building

The Ternary Building
6205 Temple Hill Drive

The home of Grace Shaw Duff, Henry Hotchener and Marie Russack, prominent Theosophists. Complete with Italianate gardens, Moorish meditation areas and a lotus pool (why stop at one style when you can have them all?),  the Ternary teemed with mystical activity. A stadium was erected in the gardens in 1918 and used to stage a dramatization of Sir Edwin Arnold's "The Light of Asia."

Apartments, naturally!
