Berkeley in Alameda County, California — The American West (Pacific Coastal)
Mrs. E.P. (Stella) King Building
Albert Dodge Coplin, Architect
— 1901 —
designated in 2005
Self-taught designer A.D. Coplin used narrow shiplap siding and scroll-sawn eave details, adapting Colonial Revival and Craftsman styles into his eclectic design. Although modified for different uses over the years, the E.P. King building retains its original appearance and corner-store character. This wood frame building and the adjacent Soda Works building are survivors of the early commercial district along this section of Telegraph Avenue.
Erected 2005 by Berkeley Historical Plaque Project.
