This handsome, historic building – Fort Worth’s first true skyscraper – offers a variety of attractive office spaces.
The building is neoclassical in design, featuring white terra cotta and granite columns at the base of the building facing Main Street. The middle of the building is red brick, with a terra cotta band separating each floor. The top of the building features white terra cotta with an elaborate cornice.

Designed by Sanguinet & Staats – Fort Worth’s most prominent architectural firm in the early 20th century – the building was constructed in 1914 as the home of the State National Bank. At the time, it was the tallest structure in the city. The bank failed a year later, and Samuel Burk Burnett bought and renamed the building.
The Burk Burnett Building was restored in 1981, and the lobby was restored in 1984 and 2006. It was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.
