Clarkson House – Ryan Place

This large Tudor Revival house has a red brick veneer and steeply pitched gables clad in red tile. The brick is laid partially in diaper pattern and peppered with clinkers. The entry is framed in cast stone and surmounted by a half-timbered gable. A large three-paned stairwell window, stepped at the bottom, has leaded and stained glass panes. Wiley G. Clarkson, architect of a number of houses in the Ryan Place Addition, designed this as his own residence. For its architectural quality and association with an important Fort Worth architect, the Clarkson House appears to be eligible for the National Register. The Clarkson House was designated a City of Fort Worth Historic and Cultural Landmark in 1992.
