Duke( Esq. MA,A.M.T.C.E ) in the year 1921 for a princely sum of Rs.7,500, thenceforth the bungalow was famed as ‘Dukes Bungalow’.

Somewhere in 1925, somehow the name changed to Rock Fort and once again it changed hands to Madam Ida Louisa Chambers in the year 1940,and Madam Ida an ardent gardener and horticulturist, created the garden and the woods around. In the year 1957, it fell in the hands of Mrs. Bala Krishna Ammal, since then Smt. Ammal and her family are nursing the property in grandeur way.
