“an integral part of the Peak-Suburban Historic District”
The Corinthian Bed and Breakfast is an historic home near the heart of downtown Dallas. The Corinthian is an integral part of the Peak-Suburban Historic District near the Swiss Avenue area of famous homes. Even though the Corinthian is convenient for business and events in the city and the surrounding areas, its location allows for a peaceful retreat. Originally the house was numbered 379 Junius Street. (The numbering changed in the early part of the 1900’s.) A Building Permit (Permit #888) was granted on July 13, 1905 with an estimated building cost of $4,500. The house was built for Dr. Garfield Hackler, Professor of Surgery at University of Dallas (later known as Baylor Medical College) and Chief Surgeon at Baylor Hospital. It was called “The Colonial, a Boarding House for Young Ladies.” Robert Franks passed away in 1951, and Mrs. Franks continued to live here until her death in 2001. After Mrs. Franks’ death at the age of 92, Craig Penfold purchased the property on April 1, 2001. Dan Tucker assisted Mr. Penfold in restoring the house to reflect the original design and grandeur. The woodwork has been stripped, stained and returned to its original beauty. The pocket doors were reworked and the fireplace in the Formal Parlor has been restored.
