Marker Text A native of Bonham, Texas, Clarence Lanius (1880-1947) was a cattleman with ranches in several locations across the state. By 1922 he and his wife, Myrtle (Swecker) (1880-1958), had moved into their new home here in the city's finest residential area in the early 20th century. The Lanius house is a good example of the Bungalow style of architecture popular at the time and features broad overhanging eaves that are somewhat flared. A wide porch and porte-cochere dominate the facade. Recorded Texas Historic Landmark-1985.
