Russ and Lisa Mabry-Williams were featured along with their Old Conway home at 1717 Bruce St. The English Tudor-style brick home was built in 1931, and is almost a textbook example of the style, featuring multi-level eaves, a gabled dormer, side gables, patterned brick and a steep-pitched roof. The Williamses said they are proud of the heritage of their home, which was originally owned by Dr. Frank Harrin, director of the Department of Education at Arkansas State Teacher College. Another well-known owner was Col. Heber McAlister, the third president of ASTC from 1930 to 1941.
