Marker Text At the time of this home's c. 1920 construction, the Mistletoe Heights neighborhood was emerging as a desirable subdivision for merchants and professionals. Designed by noted local architect Joseph R. Pelich, the Spanish Eclectic style home features a clay tile roof, large arched windows and doorways, stucco walls, embellished door surrounds, chimney belvedere and wrought iron detailing. Dr. Arvel and Faye Ponton were the first occupants. Dr. Ponton helped establish Fort Worth's Protestant Hospital and later his own clinic in a building also designed by Pelich.
