769 Samuels Avenue
The Garvey-Viehl-Kelley house is one of the oldest high-style residences in Fort Worth. This Queen Anne residence was built, in stages from 1884 until 1890, for grocery store owner and real estate dealer William B. Garvey and his wife Lucy, the granddaughter of Baldwin L. Samuel, the street’s namesake.

Late owners of the house fell upon hard times, and eventually, the home vacated, making it the target of vandals and fires.  The house was placed on HFW’s Endangered Places List hoping for the best.

Today, the home is a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark and an Historic & Cultural Landmark of the City of Fort Worth.  Embrey Partners Ltd. of San Antonio worked “The Kelley” into their apartment projects as the marketing office.
