Pelich House – Westview

Noted local architect Joseph R. Pelich, Sr., who was responsible for several major River Crest Addition houses as well as a number of public and private commissions in the Fort Worth area, designed this Norman Farmhouse style residence for himself and his wife Kathleen, in 1930. A mechanic’s lien indicates that contractor D. D. Jones was retained to construct the building later the same year. The H-Plan structure consists of a two-story main hipped block flanked by one and one-half story gabled wings projecting south to form a courtyard. The house remained in the Pelich family until1979, and is in good condition. Upon assessment of the structure’s integrity, it may be eligible for the National Register.
