George T. Reynolds Carriage House – 1310 Ballinger Street

1310 Ballinger Street [BSHD], George T. Reynolds Carriage House, c. 1900-01. This building was originally the carriage house for the George T. Reynolds home (CBD 65) at 1404 EI Paso St. With his brother William, George Reynolds ran the Reynolds Cattle Co. headquartered in Fort Worth.  The Reynolds family owned this property until 1935 when it was sold to the State Medical Association of Texas.  The carriage house continued to be used as a residence for maintenance workers through the 1940s.  The Red Cross held the property in the 1950s, and during the following decades it was used as an office and print shop for International Service Insurance Co. In 1991, the property was vacant and for sale.  The carriage house is a contributor to the potential Ballinger Street Historic District.
