Inscription. This residence was built in 1906 for prominent Tyler businessman Walter Connally. Connally’s business interests included banking, ownership of a gin equipment firm, and part ownership in a hardware company. After his death in 1918, Connally’s widow Gretta continued to live in the house with her son and daughter-in-law. The house, which remained in the Connally family for more than 70 years, features influences of Mediterranean and Renaissance Revival styling.
