The Bledsoe House

The Bledsoe House, 1812 Broadway, is a bungalow-style home built in 1921 for state Sen. and Mrs. William H. Bledsoe.

Bledsoe represented West Texas in the state Legislature from 1917 to 1928, holding important posts in both the House and Senate and bringing favorable attention to West Texas and Lubbock. He is best known as the author of the Senate bill establishing Texas Tech. His wife, Emma N. Boone Bledsoe, was one of the first women attorneys trained by the University of Texas.

Members of the Bledsoe family lived in the home until 1985.
