Profile Description

The house at 859 Oak Street was built by Elmer Browning, a Ludlow developer and businessman, around 1920.  The Egyptian-Revival style is unusual for Northern Kentucky.  It is an architectural style that uses the motifs and imagery of ancient Egypt.  The expeditions that eventually led to the discovery in 1922 of the treasure of Tutankhamun‘s tomb by the archaeologist Howard Carter resulted in a 20th-century revival of the Art Deco decorative arts style in the 1920’s.
