1. Bryden Road Historic District Marker
Inscription.  Bryden Road is named after James Bryden, a city councilman and county commissioner who owned 135 acres here in the 1840's. By 1900 Bryden Road was known for its stately homes, canopy of elms, and the electrically lit metal arch at its west entrance. Some of the city's most prominent residents lived here, including Lorenzo English, mayor for five terms, and Joseph Carr, founder and president of the National Football League. The works of artists Alice Schille and George Bellows, Jr., architects Joseph Yost and Florence Kenyon Rector, and writer James Thurber are part of the Bryden Road legacy. The homes remaining today represent a unique inventory of architectural styles: Italianate, Second Empire, Gothic Revival, Queen Anne, Four Square, Tudor, Romanesque Revival, Chateauesque, Georgian Revival, Craftsman, and Prairie.
