682 Summit Avenue

This "rescued" brownstone has a restoration history similar to other mansions on the Avenue.  The structure was built in 1893 for $25,000 by Joseph Lockley.  The 16" bearing walls are of Iron River Lake Superior brownstone.  In the mid-1950's the house was converted into 19 apartments.  However, in the 1980's, a private developer bought the building, gutted it and rebuilt the interior, chemically cleaning and tuck-pointed the exterior.  The same kind of brownstone from demolition sites in Minneapolis was used to attach a new porch.  This old building is now Brownstone Corners Condominiums.
