The Banks law firm and Brazos County Historical Commission will be holding an unveiling and dedication ceremony for the newly designated Recorded Texas Historic Landmark, The Wipprecht House. The Queen Anne style house, located at 500 East 29th Street in Bryan, was constructed by George and Charlie Jenkins. It was described by preservation consultants as, “one of the few intact Victorian-era houses in the City” (Bryan). In addition to the architectural historic significance, the Wipprecht family made significant contributions to agricultural science and had great influence in keeping A&M College in College Station.
The dedication ceremony for the marker will be held at the home, at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, May 6th.
