Historic Samuels Avenue home rezoned after move

🕐 1 min read

The Fort Worth City Council made some changes that could help maintain an historic home during its Nov. 7 meeting.

The historic Talbott-Wall house, which was recently moved several blocks to accommodate construction in the area, was zoned single-family at its current location, 1102 Samuels Ave.

During the meeting, the council voted to change the zoning to commercial or single-family with historic and cultural overlay. City officials said that essentially the structure will not change but the inside is flexible. It can be used as single-family residence or for office space.

“I move for approval with appreciation for the saving of this magnificent house,” District 9 Councilwoman Ann Zadeh said.

In 1903, Dr. Richard Decatur Talbott and his wife, Elizabeth, built a Dutch colonial revival home at 915 Samuels Ave. on 10 acres overlooking the Trinity River. Talbott was one of Tarrant County’s first physicians.

The 2,098-square-foot home was moved two blocks north in May to allow Embrey Development Co. of San Antonio to start construction of a 353-unit apartment complex. Embrey donated the house to Historic Fort Worth and helped with some of the moving costs. David Burshears, a board member with Historic Fort Worth, bought the land where the house now sits.

Northern Realty Group is marketing the property for $300,000. Will Northern, owner of Northern Realty Group, said that with the rezoning, the house could be great for a law office or divided into several small offices.
