The William L. Terry House
"Registered on the National Register of Historic Places, January 1, 1976. The William L. Terry House (also known as the Terry-Jung House) is an example of the Queen Anne architectural style, notable for its jigsaw decorative trim. It is eclectic in its details, such as the porch posts, which are Dravidian, a style imported from India.
Built at 1422 Scott Street, now within the Capitol Zoning District and the MacArthur Park Historic District in Little Rock (Pulaski County), the home received a National Register of Historic Places designation on January 1, 1976. Exterior alterations have been modest. Interior alterations have been less restrained, but many features have been preserved.
The house was constructed in the mid-1880s by William Leake Terry as a family home. Terry was born in North Carolina, but his family relocated to Mississippi and then Arkansas while he was a child. He was a prominent lawyer and politician at the city, state, and national level. He served in the U.S. Congress for five terms as a Democrat, beginning in 1892.
When Terry died in 1917, the house was acquired by Joseph Jung, proprietor of the Rose City Bakery, and a number of Jung family members made it their home........"
