Eckel was born in Strasbourg in the Alsace region of France. He apprenticed and studied at a few places before entering study at the prestigious Ecole des Beaux Arts in 1864. He came to St. Joseph, Missouri.[1]

George R. Eckel was Edmond's son, also an architect. Eckel & Aldrich was a partnership of father, son, and Aldrich.[1]
