Friedman House – Westover

Harry B. Friedman, a general contractor whose firm constructed a number of Fort Worth landmarks, moved with his wife and family from his Arlington Heights residence toWestover Hills about 1929. Designed by Wiley G. Clarkson, the eclectic Period Revival style house has an irregular, picturesque plan on the extensive, wooded parcel. Constructed of hollow tile with a sandstone and tan stucco veneer, the design features half-timbered gable ends and steel-sash casement windows under a complex, hipped and gabled roof clad in multicolored clay shingle tile. In excellent condition, the house remains in the family, and appears to qualify for the National Register on the basis of its design and associations with an important Fort Worth figure.
