Also known as James Buchanan Anderson House.
James Buchanan Anderson was born in Baltimore in 1852. He came to Tampa in 1891 to serve as pastor of the First Methodist Church. In 1893 he resigned to accept a position as receiver for Tampa's Gulf National Bank.
The house was designed by architect Francis J. Kennard and built in 1898. The imposing Queen Anne mansion was rendered in brick, granite and marble and boasted a ballroom on the third floor, where Anderson's daughters gave dance lessons.
The house stands as one of Tampa's last examples of Queen Anne style. It is also sometimes referred to as the Anderson-Frank House because it was bought in the mid 1970s and restored by then-state Senator (and current county commissioner) Pat Frank and her husband, attorney Richard Frank.
