Wimberly House – Lipscomb

The Wimberly House is a two-story brick-veneer structure with an irregular plan, slate hipped roof and gabled bays. The windows are arched on the ground floor. A hipped porch supported by brick piers and Tuscan columns is set in the angle of the front bay with the main house. Fred W. Wimberly commissioned contractor W. C. Mobley to build this vaguely Georgian Revival residence in 1925. Wimberly was the owner of automobile and advertising agencies in Fort Worth. It is one of several large houses along this stretch of Lipscomb. The Wimberly House is a contributing resource in the Fairmount-Southside Historic District (local and national). Since first documented, the front porch enclosure has been removed. The accompanying photo was taken in 2000.
