O’Neil Ford: 1712 Highland Park Road

Add to plan Remove from plan

Designed by O’Neil Ford and Arch Swank in 1939 for Miss Lillian Parrill and her two sisters, this home was originally located at the corner of Avenue “D” and Chestnut Street. When the house was featured in the April 1940 issue of Pencil Points magazine (now Progressive Architecture), the photo caption noted the oiled hemlock siding, the steel casement windows, and its $6,500 price tag. This residence was moved to its present location in 1967 to make way for the expansion of the University of North Texas.
