President's House

President’s Home

McMurry College President Frank L. Turner began a campaign in 1938 to build a formal home for the president on campus. The board authorized construction of the presidential home not to exceed a total cost of $10,000. The two-story home on Sayles Boulevard was finished in 1939. It was the home that served McMurry presidents or other high administrative officials until it was demolished in the 1960s to make way for the Ryan Fine Arts Center.
