The property, carrying years of family history, faced its darkest hour when tragedy struck all those years ago. A valiant Irving police officer, Aubrey Wright Hawkins – Badge #830, lost his life in a standoff, casting a long shadow of sorrow over the area for many years to come. This event left an indelible mark, making it difficult to breathe new life into the space. It was a period marked by reflection and the stark realization of the property’s somber legacy.
