Fairmount Apartments – Fairmount

The Tudor Revival style Fairmount Apartments consist of two mirror-image buildings flanking a court, with garages at the rear. Each building has a rectangular plan, gabled roof, and cross-gabled end bays. Walls are brick veneer. Sandstone veneer is applied to a portion of the front wall, surmounted by a slightly cantilevered gabled bay, half-timbered with stucco infill. This is one of several apartment complexes in south Fort Worth utilizing a courtyard plan which were owned by the Management Co. of Texas in the 1920s and is virtually identical to two others (see 2100-06 Forest Park Boulevard and 1420-26 College Avenue). The Fairmount Apartments were demolished in c. 2001 for the widening of Rosedale Street.
