Architecture in Fort Worth


Land Title Block

111 E. 4th St. - 1889 (RTHL, CFW)


This is one of the best Victorian commercial buildings in Downtown. It also has shades of the Romanesque Revival style. The building is red brick with red sandstone trim, original stained glass windows, and original multi-colored glazed brick. It was designed by Haggard and Sanguinet of Fort Worth and originally housed the Land Mortgage Bank, the Chamberlain Investment Co. (developers of the Arlington Heights subdivision in Fort Worth), and the law firm of Ross, Herd, & Ross. One of the decorative pieces of sandstone showing an owl and a mockingbird. Another is the initials of R.H.R. Over the years, there have been a number of tenants. The current tenant is the Bird Café.  As a part of the work in the adjacent Sundance Square Plaza, the building was designated along with the Mural Building as City of Fort Worth Historic & Cultural Landmarks.
