2016 HFW Membership Tours

6520 White Settlement Road, Hawks Creek Golf Club

Thursday, May 12th, 2016

Members toured the Hawks Creek Golf Club that was built in 1936 by Leo Potishman.  The Potishman residence is an excellent example of a high-style Tudor Revival mansion, which was very popular in Fort Worth during the 1920s and 1930s.   It was sold to Charles F. Clayton in 1943 who owned it until 1954 when it became part of the Carswell Air Force Base.  In 1960, Carswell Air Force Base dedicated a new golf course and the house was transformed into a clubhouse.

1001 Bryan Avenue, Pouring Glory

Thursday, August 25, 2016

Members toured this 1943 commercial building  that was rehabilitated into a restaurant space and received an HFW Preservation Award in 2016.  This building is a great example of minimal traditional commercial architecture that is representative of the World War II era building design.  The structure has a long history as a local night club and watering hole, from the Tipp Topp Inn Night Club, to Club Nu Flava, to the current incarnation as Pouring Glory Growler Station.  View more about the award and restoration work done here.
