According to the book Images of America Temple Terrace, M. Leo Elliot designed this home for Reverend Van de Venter. It was one of the largest and one of the first built in Temple Terrace. Aside from the Camery in the driveway, this home looks much the same today as it did 90 years ago.

Thank you Temple Terrace Preservation Society for providing the historic photograph.

    Great job on all your new pics Bryan. As an FYI, M. Leo Elliot was an architect of Tampa’s historic City Hall building now at 315 Kennedy. http://www.tampapix.com/oldcityhall.htm

    I knew Mrs Van De Venter during the 1950s. She often came to Sunday dinner at the Florida College cafeteria. My Mother worked there. I was in the 6th grade, attended the Temple Terrace three room school and spent many hours riding my bicycle all over TT. I love seeing these pictures–fond memories. . .Pat Mccants
