Education Meeting

Dallas and the Drive-In

Nancy McCoy, Preservation Architect

Monday, October 2, 2017

6:30 p.m. Reception / 7:00 p.m. Program

Home of Sam Wyly
3905 Beverly Drive

The Wyly house was originally designed by renowned Dallas architect C.D. Hill for Fred Schoellkopf, who was one of the developers of Highland Park, and was completed in 1923. It’s as if this home was destined to be owned by genius entrepreneurs. Schoellkopf has a business history that equals Wyly’s. His father moved to Dallas in 1869 and built a prominent saddlery and leather business in downtown Dallas. Fred became vice president of the Schoellkopf Company, best known for its trademark white elephant and famous Jumbo Brand saddles, still available on eBay today.
