Parks Estate images from 1930s and today.

Joseph Parks made his fortune in the business of death. The founder of the Dallas Coffin Co. and his wife, Lucy, built their dream home in 1922 at 6220 Worth St. and raised five children there. In 1957 the property was sold to the YMCA, which conducted extensive renovations. But in the mid-2000s, Tom and Kathi Lind purchased the home and hired architect Norman Alston to spend two years restoring the classic mission style home, for which they earned an award from Preservation Dallas.
