Vinson House – Grand

Winfield S. Vinson, a cattle salesman with Cassidy Southwestern Commission Co., purchased this site in 1907 from North Fort Worth Townsite Co. 3. B. Kirby was hired to construct this large one and one-half story house in 1907. A recurring Fort Worth house type, a gable roof slopes toward the street over a full porch supported by boxed and paneled posts. A prominent feature is the large central dormer window with a railed balcony. The frame house is sheathed in asbestos siding. It contributes to the proposed Grand Avenue National Register Historic District.
