1000 Throckmorton - 1938


This Classical Moderne Building was designed by Wyatt C. Hedrick and was built as a part of the Works Progress Administration. It served as Fort Worth's City Hall from 1938 until 1978. The Moderne style was a part of the Art Deco Movement.

The building was renamed in 2007 for A.D. Marshall, one of the city's longest tenured employees.
