The Daniel Home

In 1947, Dallas and Roy Lee Garrett built the attractive home at 710 North 9th Street and made it their residence until 1953. The Garretts sold the home in 1953 to Mr. and Mrs. F.H. (Dutch) Daniel. Mr. Daniel owned and operated the Buick dealership in Temple as well as Daniel Insurance. The Daniels spent more than forty years in the large traditional home before the widow, Mrs. Daniel, eventually sold the property in 1994-95. Many of the rooms in the home have retained the knotty pine paneling updated with paint and the original built-in desks and bookshelves that were popular in custom homes of this period. Residents who have lived in this captivating home after it was sold by the Daniels include various business and entrepreneurial professionals who have greatly contributed to the cultural and economic advancement of both the historic district and the City of Temple.
