Public Safety and Courts Building

Lone Star Gas Company
Fort Worth, TX
The Lone Star Gas Company office building was built in 1929. The top three floors were added in 1957. The revolving, neon flame sign was built by the Federal Electric Sign Co. and installed then. The flame represented the company's logo and was lit with blue and white neon. Some people remember the flame having an animated flicker.

The gas company no longer exists and the building now houses city offices. The sign, which is about 20 feet tall, was removed in 2018 and moved to city storage. There were concerns that it was no longer structurally sound. There are plans to restore and reinstall the sign once funding is established. The expected cost will be about $120,000. Atmos Energy has offered to cover half of that. The sign may also be designated as part of the Fort Worth Public Art collection making it eligible for city funded maintenance. For more, see this website. [map]
