Eggleston, one of the foremost and best known writers of fiction from Indiana was a clergyman and historian as well as writer. His better known works being "The Hoosier Schoolmaster," "The Household History of the US and it's People," "The Shawnee Prophet," "Hoosier Schoolboy," and "Circuit Rider." He was a Methodist minister for some time in Indiana and Minnesota but had some issues with those ministries over his writing of fiction and moved to a ministry in Brooklyn in 1874. In 1881 Eggleston and his brother George Cary Eggleston each built a house on Lake George, NY. Edward Eggleston built "Owl's Nest" with his library in the attached by a covered walkway "Mellowstone." The building was designed to his specifications and the decorations both inside and out were after designs by his daughter Allegra.
