Lenox Clinic/ Central Avenue Clinic – Central

Dr. Walter Riley Lenox purchased this lot on Central Avenue in 1945. Designed the same year by Charles T. Freelove, architect, and Fred E. Hess, engineer, of Consolidated Architects and Engineers of Fort Worth, the Lenox Clinic was built the following year. Of reinforced concrete covered with smooth white stucco, the structure features large glass-block windows which curve around the rounded double and single corners of the east and west ends. A square tower with a glass-block window and a flat canopy portico with curved edge form the entry porch of the asymmetrical composition. One of the best Streamline Moderne buildings in Fort Worth, the clinic may be eligible for National Register listing for its architectural design and integrity upon attainment of fifty years of age.
