The Chilton Grand is an elegant Greek Revival Mansion situated in the lovely brick street area known as the Azalea District.
The mansion built in 1910 by James Adams, owner of the local Hardware and Buggy store. It was a 2 storey wood sided house somewhat smaller than you see today.
The second owner was Sigmund Bruck. He was President of the upscale Mayer Schmidt Department Store in downtown Tyler, which was to become the second Dillards Department Store in the country. Mr Bruck was also President of the Tyler Chamber of Commerce.
The third owners were the Roberts family. In the 1950's they significantly enlarged the house, adding the brick siding, the spectacular Corinthian columns (which were salvaged from an older house), and an elevator. They also turned the house into apartments.
When the Glazebrooks purchased the house in 1990, it was in pretty sad condition, and still being rented out as apartments. Taking on the job of renovation, they have done all the work themselves with a lot of TLC, not to mention blood, sweat, and tears.
Each guest chamber in the Chilton Grand has been carefully and lovingly designed and decorated to make your stay a truly memorable one.
