Peak House – Elizabeth

This two-story yellow brick house, with parapeted flat roof and canopy-like eave, was designed and built in 1913 by B. G. Leake, a Fort Worth architect and civil engineer. The original owner (through the 1930s) was Howard W. Peak, owner of a safe company. Peak, a well-known amateur historian, was reputedly the first white child born in Tarrant County. The Peak House is a contributing resource in the Elizabeth Boulevard Historic District (local and national).
