About the Historic King Stubbs – Horne House

The King Stubbs-Horne House at 1608 N. 5th Street in the historic Garden District of Monroe features some of the most stunningly landscaped grounds and beautiful pools in the entire city. Monroe’s King Stubbs left his mark in northern Louisiana, as well as Arkansas and Mississippi. Born in 1909 he was a product of the Tulane School of Architecture. Upon graduation in 1932, Stubbs returned home to Monroe to practice. In 1947 he opened a firm of his own, and over the next almost forty years, produced some 600 projects. Stubbs was best known for his residential designs. Stubbs and/or his clients looked to the Georgian and Greek Revival styles. Some are big two story houses, while others are galleried cottages. Time and again Stubbs was able to achieve an element of stateliness in relatively small houses.


DRESS:       It’s mostly outdoors so plan to be comfortable, but to really get into the spirit of the event check out this link for a starting place about dressing for the Kentucky Derby https://www.kentuckyderby.com/visit/what-to-wear
