Fort Worth Federation of Colored Women’s Clubs – Evans

The Federation of Colored Women’s Clubs purchased this property in 1940. The present structure opened in May 1954. Although it was constructed on what was then a bustling commercial street for the surrounding African American community, the one-story building appears similar to many Ranch style homes of the era. It has a low-pitched gable-on-hip roof, brick walls with metal casement and hung windows, and an integral porch with wrought iron columns at the northwest corner of the structure. The building continues to serve as the Federation’s home. It appears to be eligible for the National Register of Historic Places for its association with an important social institution in the African American community.
