The McClendon House is one-story residence built in 1920 for Martha and Richard McClendon. It is front-gabled with partial-width entry porch supported by paired box columns, wood-framed sash windows, narrow wood siding, paneled gable ends, wide cornice boards, and exposed rafter tails. Builder Ira Thomas Naugle built 16 Craftsman style homes in district. This building is representative of the Craftsman style houses in the district. The four McClendon brothers built Craftsman houses on adjacent lots at 405, 407, 409, and 411 Amarillo Street. They all lived in Denton by 1920 and started a house painting and paper hanging company together, advertising their services in the Denton Record-Chronicle as the McClendon Brothers. By 1925, the McClendon Brothers shifted their business to retail, selling paint, varnishes, enamels, window glass and wallpaper at 409 N. Elm Street. By 1930, their parents, Richard and Cynthia McClendon lived a block away at 918 Anderson Street.
