D Hart and Sons Livestock Co/ Fort Worth Stock Yards Co Warehouse – Main

Dominick Hart purchased most of this block bounded by N. Main, NW. 27th, NW 26th Streets and Ellis Avenue in 1915 (2601 N Main Street). His livestock firm D. Hart and Sons, seems to have operated as an independent competitor to the large Stock Yards Co. This two-story, L-plan building, set on a sloping site, is constructed of brick over a concrete foundation. The structure was built as a slaughterhouse, but may have originally been used as a barn as Hart was never able to begin packinghouse operations. After 1926, the Fort Worth Stock Yards Co. leased the structure as a barn and warehouse. A later tenant of the structure was the Braziel Refrigeration Co. The structure, now abandoned, lies within the Fort Worth Stockyards National Register Historic District.
