Mary Elizabeth Court Apartments – Hemphill

This apartment complex consists of two mirror-image yellow brick buildings flanking a central courtyard, each two stories in height with hipped roofs. A mission parapeted wall joins the buildings and screens the courtyard. This is one of several apartment complexes in south Fort Worth with a courtyard plan owned by the Management Co. of Texas in the 1920s (for examples, see 1101-07 Fairmount Avenue [since demolished] and 2100-04 Hemphill Street). It is excellently maintained. The apartments are now in fair condition. They are contributing resources in the Fairmount-Southside Historic District (local and national).
