D. Hart and Sons Livestock Co./ Fort Worth Stock Yards Co. Carpenter Shop/ Ryon’s Saddle and Ranch Supply – Main

All but one lot of this block was purchased in 1915 by D. Hart and Sons, a livestock firm (2629 N Main Street). By 1925 the structure housed the Stock Yards Co. Carpenter Shop, which remained there until the 1950s. The two-story, industrial structure has a stuccoed concrete first floor elevation below a brick second floor. A rustic “Western” storefront and canopy were added to the structure in 1959 after Ryon’s Saddle and Ranch Supply located here; the windows may have been closed at this time. Further research may bring more infonnation to light on the history of D. Hart and Sons’ operations. The structure is included in the Fort Worth Stockyards National Register Historic District.
