College Station Has Two More Historical Markers

The city of College Station now has 102 historical markers of homes that are at least 50 years old.

The chairman of the city’s historic preservation committee, Gerald Burgner, presented two at the last city council meeting.

The Matthews house at 602 West Dexter Street was built in the 1920s by Fred and Vera Dean Brison. Fred Brison was a professor in the Texas A&M Horticulture Department and was College Station’s mayor pro tem from 1971-74.

The other marker is at 805 Hawthorn Street. The Hindman house was built in 1957 by E.H. Andrew, an A&M electric engineering professor. It has been the home of several A&M faculty members, among others.
