Bryan House – Leuda

The Bryan House is a one and one-half story wood-framed structure clad in channel rustic siding. The house is quaintly composed and miniature in scale. A hipped dependency projects forward, supported by Tuscan columns framing a recessed porch. This is balanced by a gabled bay with bracketed eave returns and shingled pediment. A tiny double-gabled dormer is set high on the house’s hipped roof. The house was built c. 1901 for Morgan Bryan, a socially prominent attorney. His wife was Helen Daggett, member of the pioneer Fort Worth family. The house may be eligible for the National Register following documentation of its architect or builder.
The Bryan House was designated Demolition Delay in 1995. It, too, could be eligible for the National Register as a contributing resource with the expansion of the boundaries of the present Leuda-May Historic District.
