About the Building
Sundance Square has breathed new life into the Jarvis Building, the oldest commercial building in Sundance Square and the only downtown commercial building made of stone. The building is an excellent example of Italianate commercial architecture that was common in Fort Worth in the 1880s.
The building is home to the Main Street Visitors Center, operated by Visit Fort Worth. The center uses state-of-the-art technology to promote Fort Worth attractions and help visitors find their way around the city.

The building is named for J.J. Jarvis, who was a member of one of the founding families of Fort Worth and a law partner of John Peter Smith. The building was remodeled in 1968 and restored in 2008 and 2009, when the exterior was returned to its original appearance. The architect for the restoration was FIRM817.
The Jarvis Building received a Trailblazer Award for Preservation and Adaptive Re-Use from Downtown Fort Worth Inc.
