Fire Station No. 6 – Fulton

This one-story bungalow-style fire station is constructed of brick with shallow-pitched hipped roof. A hipped porch projects forward, supported by clusters of bracketed wood posts on battered brick piers. This was one of about ten such fire stations built in Fort Worth in 1922 and 1923, designed to complement residential neighborhoods, three of which have been documented in this phase of the survey (see 1601 Lipscomb Street and 1616 Park Place Avenue). All seem to have been the work of architect Charles F. Allen and contractor B. B. Adams. This station was sold by the city in 1966 and now houses offices. It appears to be eligible for the National Register as part of an ambitious municipal program of sensitive civic design. As the remaining bungalow fire stations in Fort Worth are documented in future phases of the survey, they will be included in a National Register Thematic Group. This building now serves as a clinic.. It received the Demolition Delay designation in 1995. A thematic nomination, now called a Multiple Property Submission, would still be a viable way of listing the fire stations on the National Register.
