The Bryant House was built for Shepard and Alberta Bryant, and their two grandchildren. The 24-inch thick walls are stacked hay bales stuccoed over with concrete; sheltered by a large roof that creates a great southern porch. In 2003 Shepard passed away and Alberta continued to live in the house until 2007. Their granddaughter Cupcake now calls the house home.
