Texas A&M Department of Construction Science Inducts HistoryMaker’s Bryan Mitchell, Sr., into Constructor Hall of Fame

Texas A&M University’s Department of Construction Science has inducted Dr. Bryan N. Mitchell, Sr., into its Constructor Hall of Fame, adding HistoryMaker Homes’ Chairman Emeritus to a distinguished list of real estate innovators.

Dr. Mitchell followed his grandfather and father into the family business in 1986 following a veterinary career spanning 15 years and three Tarrant County veterinary clinics. Under his leadership, HistoryMaker grew into a nationally recognized company and solidified its position as one of the most prodigious land developers and homebuilders in the Dallas-Fort Worth region. 

“My father built thousands of affordable homes for first-time homebuyers across North Texas,” said Nelson Mitchell, who transitioned to HistoryMaker President in 2000. “He took a company carefully built by his father and grandfather to the next level, shaping the residential landscape of Dallas-Fort Worth.”

Among Dr. Mitchell’s numerous industry awards are the Award for Construction Excellence (ACE) and the National Housing Quality Award (NHQ) from the National Association of Homebuilders. 

A 1970 graduate of Texas A&M University, Dr. Mitchell has long been a supporter of the school’s construction science and real estate programs, gifting $2.3 million in 2006 to fund a program that bridged the Department of Construction Science and the Mays School of Business’ real estate program.

The largest financial contribution received by the department at the time, this gift endowed five faculty positions, funded 10 student scholarships and supported the construction of an interdisciplinary studio and curriculum focusing on residential construction and design.

“My father’s passion has always been to build communities and homes for families,” Nelson said. “His generosity to Texas A&M has helped teach, train and develop our current and future industry leaders. More families will own high quality, energy efficient, affordable homes because of his and my mother’s generosity and vision. The TAMU Department of Construction Science has been a great partner with HistoryMaker Homes.”

Today, HistoryMaker Homes builds more than 1,000 homes annually across 36 Texas new home communities. It is ranked No. 57 on Builder magazine’s list of the top homebuilders in the nation.
