​​​​​​The Houston-Galveston area has no shortage of unique structures, but one curious property stands out—the GALVESTON – The Houston-Galveston area has no shortage of unique structures, but one curious property stands out—the "Kettle House."

The Kettle House is now in the process of being sold.​

The inverted steel dome with a wood-shingle roof at 1410 Miramar Dr. has been the subject of curiosity for years.​

Etheridge-Rachels’s father Clayton E. Stokley built the house, which was originally intended to be a convenience and liquor store.

When employed at Graver Tank & Manufacturing Co. Inc., Stokley bought a massive three-eighths-inch steel sphere from a deal that fell through.

However, Stokley’s retail space project never came to fruition. 

He passed away in 2005, and the family later made improvements to it, but no one ever moved in.
