Historic Designation:

City of Fort Worth Historic & Cultural Landmark


Fire Station #20 was one of a number of fire stations built in Fort Worth in the post-World War I era which were designed to fit in with the neighborhoods they served.  The building was designed to look like a typical bungalow and features an offset gabled portico supported by thick stuccoed columns and Tudor accents.  The architect was Wiley G. Clarkson, a prominent Fort Worth architect.   It served as an active Fort Worth fire station until 1983.  The building still stands as a local landmark, housing a pottery studio and art gallery. In the last several years, the addition of a coffee truck on the property has given the property new vitality as a popular gathering spot.
