Every Aggie knows about Kyle Field, home to the Fightin’ Texas Aggie Football team. Every Aggie also needs to know about another historic site – Kyle House – that was the home of Dr. Edwin Kyle, namesake of Aggieland’s beloved Kyle Field football stadium. Kyle House has just reopened as Bryan’s only historic event facility and gallery.

If you have not recently visited the property, then plan to attend the Open House on Friday, September 7, beginning at 5pm. You’ll discover many enhancements. The home’s architecture continues to showcase its Victorian charm while the versatile interior space allows you to customize the venue to your needs. Whether your event uses the entire property or one intimate room, the Kyle House is available for receptions, dinners, lectures, retreats, fund raisers,weddings and holiday parties. Light pours in during the day, making the space ideal for art classes and celebratory occasions like baby showers.

Local photographers and painters are excited to work in the house because of its uniqueness and visual appeal; art classes are scheduled every Tuesday and Thursday this fall. Guests will enjoy the newly installed gallery lighting and state-of-the-art sound system that bring to life the ivory-colored walls hung with art. Soaring 18-foot ceilings and original oak hardwood floors detail the almost 4,000 square foot property.

The Kyle House grounds also include a charming gazebo, extensive landscaped outdoor area and a front porch perfect for sipping a peach iced tea or a cold beer. Nestled at the southern end  of revitalized Downtown Bryan, the Kyle House offers a prime location adjacent to restaurants, antiqueshops and the La Salle Hotel.

After 10 years with the Arts Council of Brazos Valley, he has installed more than 100 gallery exhibitions. He champions the cultural vitality of the B/CS community. Craig says, “We have outstanding artists locally. The Kyle House Gallery gives the area a unique fine art gallery venue where locals and event guests can view, enjoy and purchase original artwork by Texas painters, photographers and sculptors. By hosting rotating exhibits, art then becomes part of the event experience.” Craig also represents emerging regional artists, connecting them with art lovers and collectors.
