Historical Marker
     Envisioning a thoroughly modern home for themselves, sisters and Houston arts community leaders Caroline Bryan Chapman (1859-1933) and Johnelle Bryan (1861-1935) had this house constructed in 1925. The home was a showplace of strong Mediterranean influences such as arched windows, multi-light doors, a Ludowici tile roof, and balconets. The sisters enjoyed their Courtlandt Place home for less than a decade. It was purchased in 1935 by Oilman Joseph F. Bashara, whose family remained in the house until 1980. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark - 1998
