Thoughts on the Contributions of Architect Anton Korn
Anton Korn designed many impressive homes in Dallas and Highland Park just prior to and in the 1920s. He may have been the only architect of his caliber to have also been involved in speculative homes in this period, maybe even as a partner in a home building company. By the 1930s he was the prominent Dallas architect of significant homes. He designed one of the most refined homes in Dallas in 1933 on Lakewood Boulevard. From 1917 to 1920 he designed houses for Hugh E. Prather, Highland Park; Mrs. Cicero Smith, Beverly Drive; William Bacon, Beverly Drive; Hugh Bell, St. John's Drive; Worth Wimberley, Beverly Drive; Thomas Morrissey, Turtle Creek Boulevard; and Henry Boazman, Maple Avenue. The Beverly Drive property was designed in 1924 utilizing replaned oak timbers from the grand Oriental Hotel when it was torn down. Ted Larson was a renovating architect of 3708 Alice Circle, which was originally designed by Anton Korn in 1924. Korn's Tudor design can also be seen at 4500 Lakeside, 4328 Overhill and 5505 Keller Springs Road. At 4700 Preston Road, on 7.7 acres, he designed the home in a Georgian or Colonial Revival style.
