Redevelopment opportunities with potential for residential, school and other uses. Lucerne is the castle-like mansion in Hamden designed by architects Brown and Von Beren and built in 1906 for Frederick D. Grave. Grave, a German immigrant who arrived in America in 1861, learned the cigar trade, and in 1884, founded his own company, F.D. Grave & Son on State Street in New Haven. The company is still in existence today at another location. Hamden’s only castle commands a hill in true feudal fashion, with Lake Whitney forming a moat at its foot. This is a highly romanticized castle — Its crenellated towers (historic photographs show that the right tower originally had a conical roof), ornate chimneys, stepped gable and other decorative features derived from various medieval precedents are used to create a picturesque mansion perfectly suited to its site.
