Hoadley -Greenwall-Stewart House – Samuels

142 1005 Samuels Avenue, [NR/SAHD(NR)], Hoadley -Greenwall- Stewart House, c. 1907. The history of this two-story Craftsman style house is unclear. Seth W. Stewart, an attorney, lived on this property as early as 1898, but the style of the house indicates a later construction date. It is more likely that the house was constructed by Edward C. Hoadley, who owned the property between September, 1906 and January, 1909. Hoadley was the president of Fort Worth Builder’s Supply. In 1915, the property was purchased by Mitchell W. Greenwall, manager of Greenwall’s Opera House. He lived here for a few years, but also rented the property before finally selling it to John E. Wallace in 1924. Wallace, a cashier with Waples-Platter Grocery Co., sold the house in 1934 to Charles A. Stewart, an attorney who worked first as Traffic Counsel and then as Secretary/General Manager for the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers Association. The house remains in the Stewart family. The house has been remodeled in recent years, but with restoration it would probably be eligible for the National Register on an individual basis. It is also a contributor to the proposed Samuels Avenue National Register Historic District.
