Inscription.  Philemon and Lucy Bryan's home was built in 1905 by contractor Edwin T. King at the request of their two sons, Reed and Tom. Philemon and Lucy first lived in a wood-frame house that had been converted into the Bryan Hotel. The New River Inn replaced the Hotel. This house is built of locally made hollow-concrete block, in the then fashionable Colonial Revival style. During World War II it served as a boarding house for young women whose husbands were in the service. The house is the oldest remaining example of residential masonry architecture in Fort Lauderdale.
 
Erected by The Fort Lauderdale Historical Society.
