Marker Text Bell County native James Andrew Fletcher (1858-1944) was a leading Temple businessman. In 1907, with his son Omar, he acquired a local business founded in 1881 by his brother-in-law Early Greathouse. It became the nucleus of Fletcher Enterprises, a prominent banking and industrial firm. This residence was designed and constructed for Fletcher and his wife Susan Jane in 1925 by Ernest Scrivener of San Antonio. It features a mixture of styles popular during the era.
