In 1887 he became Clerk of Court and served in that position until 1911. During his years here, he was noted for his kindness and irreproachable integrity. In 1910 Bryan planted six sugar maple trees on the courthouse lawn. The last of the six trees was removed in 2014 during the construction of the Courthouse Area Enhancement Project.
