Another Home

You know if I see a large old house I am going to stop. This one happens to be close enough to walk to from where our new home will be built.

This chateauesque type dwelling was built in 1893 by Wm. J. Bryce. Bryce immigrated to Ft. Worth from Scotland in 1883. He started a successful brick contracting business and was  mayor here from 1927 to 1933. The description of the house says it has Richardsonian Arches and a gabled dormers.
