Hargrave-Meissner House – Avenue B

Edward Hargrave,a salesman , and his wife were the first owners of this house which was constructed about 1910. George and Edith Meissener purchased the house in 1919 for $5,000, and it remained in the Meissner family until the late 1980’s. Mr. Meissner was a clerk with the Railway Mail Service. This two-story Tudor house has a moderately pitched gable roof, large side dormers and a gabled porch with picturesque truss supports. The second floor is clad in stucco with half timbering. This house is an early and impressive example of the Tudor style in East Fort Worth.
