Architecture in Fort Worth

Hotel Texas

2415 Ellis Ave. - 1939 (NRHD, CFWHD, CFW)

Formerly The Exchange Hotel

 

This Moderne styled hotel is constructed out of yellow hollow tile with yellow brick trim.  Use of hollow tile for an exterior street face was very unusual for its day.  The front facade is symmetrical and features a deep entry centered on the building.  Above that entry is a decorative aluminum grille.  The building originally opened as the Exchange Hotel.  The building is located within the Fort Worth Stockyards National Register Historic District and has been designated as a City of Fort Worth Historic & Cultural Landmark.
