More About Hotels near Brizendine House...

19th Century Family History and Southwestern Architecture

The Brizendine House was built in 1870 by John R. Brizendine, an accomplished carpenter, machinist, and miller. Brizendine moved to Austin from Kentucky and lived in the home until his death. Elizabeth Gordon bought the home in 1928, and members of the Gordon family lived in the home until 1972. Two years later, the home was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. The house itself is simple and rough, made out of ashlar and limestone which were common building materials for a middle class family in Austin at the time.
