The Reuben Freeman House is a unique home, sporting eight gables, that was built 1887 in Inver Grove Heights in the U.S. state of Minnesota. Freeman was a German immigrant farmer who collected stones from his acreage to build his coursed fieldstone house. Bottle glass adorns the masonry around the second-story windows, further proving his eccentricity.[2][3]
