Stock Yards Branch, Fort Worth Post Office/Boarding House – Exchange

This handsomely detailed, two-story brick structure is first listed in the 1909-10 City Directory. The first floor housed the Stock Yards Branch of the Fort Worth Post Office and the upper level was a boarding house. E. F. Melton Grocery later shared the street level premises. Later occupants of the second story included the Exchange Hotel during the 1 920s and Pearl’s Hotel during the l930s. An elaborately corbeled cornice and stepped parapet distinguish the building, which was sensitively renovated in 1981. The structure lies within the Fort Worth Stockyards Historic District.
