Wipprecht House

Date Added: 
2010

Designed in 1898 by Bryan architect George Washington Jenkins, this home was constructed for Julia Kapp Wipprecht, who was a well-known local philanthropist. Mrs. Wipprecht lived in the home until her 1919 death, after which her son, businessman Walter Wipprecht, moved with his family into the home. The house remained in the Wipprecht family until 1990, when it was sold by Walter’s granddaughter. The two-story Queen Anne-style house features a cross-gabled plan, partial-width front porch, textured shingles, and decorative gable and eave detailing.
