The year was 1956.  Elvis Presley entered the music charts for the first time with “Heartbreak Hotel.”  Norma Jean Mortenson legally changed her name to Marilyn Monroe and married playwright Arthur Miller.  Actor Tom Hanks was born.  William H. O’Neal designed the home at 3605 Overton Park Drive East for Mr. and Mrs. John Church in Fort Worth, Texas.

I know that because when touring this updated 3,077 square-foot single-story midcentury modern home, the original hand sketches of the working drawings and exterior elevation rendering are proudly displayed. History shows that William H. O’Neal also designed the south entrance gates for the Fort Worth Botanical Garden.
