Marker Text Built about 1880 for attorney Harrison Moores Whitaker and his wife, Mattie, daughter of Texas Supreme Court Justice Micajah H. Bonner, this is one of the few remaining high Victorian residences in Tyler. The home was purchased by Mattie's sister, Annie, and her husband, Sidney Smith McClendon, in 1907. It remained in the McClendon family until 1979. With Italianate and Eastlake style influences, the home features an asymmetrical plan and outstanding detailing.
