Barclay Bryan House receieves historic Temple marker

The Temple Historic Preservation Committee will hold a reception at the Barclay Bryan House Thursday afternoon to recognize the home as the most recent recipient of a Temple Historic Marker.

The reception is scheduled for June 15 at 4 p.m. The house is located at 804 S. 25th Street in Temple.

The red brick home, which was built for William Anderson Barclay between 1913 and 1915 for $65,000, has a dozen outside columns and is considered an example of Colonial Revival architecture, according to the City of Temple.

The home was built with modern conveniences including a laundry shoot, central vacuum system and intercom system, the city said.

When Mrs. Barclay died in 1933, the house was sold to Louis J. Bryan who turned it into a tourist home with an inn that remained operational until 1982.

Current owners Roger and Audrei Glick have worked to restore and preserve the historical site.
