In the mid-2000s, the area of Fort Worth referred to as the Medical District went through a dramatic change. Situated south of Interstate 30, north of the Fairmount neighborhood, bordered by 8th Avenue to Rosedale Avenue, this soon became known as the Near Southside.

At the time there were medical offices, hospitals, and a smattering of other businesses … not many restaurants, nightlife, and certainly not any urban housing options.

If historic homes could talk, what a story they would tell.

Never has that been truer than the home located at 2234 Hurley Ave. in the Fairmount neighborhood of Fort Worth.

For those of you not familiar with the Fairmount Southside National Historic District, it is a one square mile area that was platted in the late 1800s, located south of I-30 and near the majority of hospitals in Fort Worth, and of course the greatest local restaurant street in Cowtown — Magnolia Avenue.

Ryan Place is a storied, family-friendly neighborhood three miles south of downtown Fort Worth, located in the Near Southside area.

Established in 1911, Ryan Place today is a thriving neighborhood with an annual Easter egg hunt, Fourth of July parade, back-to-school pool party, “Boo on the Boulevard” celebration, and a candlelight Christmas evening.

With close proximity to downtown and the Medical District, and a vibrant mix of house styles and sizes, Ryan Place is one of Fort Worth’s most desirable neighborhoods.

Today’s Tuesday Two Hundred is a marvelous example of the kind of historic beauties located in the area. The Ryan Place cottage at 3028 6th Ave. was built in 1946, and has darling curb appeal, with colorful, mature landscaping and a charmingly maintained exterior.

The house has two bedrooms, one bathroom, and 1,234 square feet, with separate guest quarters in the back adding an additional 271 square feet and a second bathroom. It is listed by Cecile Montgomery at Burt Ladner Real Estate for $210,000.
