Welcome to Fort Worth, TX

The city of Fort Worth boasts of being more typically Texan than any other city in the state. Its extended history reads like a Western novel, full of tales of cowboys with six-shooters, saloons, and cattle-drives. Fort Worth was founded in 1849 for the purpose of serving as an outpost for the U.S. Army in its endeavor to establish and maintain control over north Texas. Several years later when the post was no longer needed, civilians turned the military buildings into schools, stores and churches, and the future of Fort Worth as a bustling Western community began. Fort Worth soon became a stop along the famous cattle drive route, Chisholm Trail. This led to the town’s development as a major trading center and to its reputation as “Cowtown.” Although the city had its ups and downs in the years to follow, the area began to see major progress and development once Texas & Pacific Railway extended its route to Fort Worth in 1876. Today the city of Fort Worth is still growing and prospering—it is the 18th largest city in the U.S., and from 2000-2006, it served as the fastest growing large city in the nation. It has a population of over 650,000, and a population of over 6 million as part of the Dallas-Ft. Worth-Arlington metropolis.

Despite its size, Fort Worth takes pride in its traditionally Western laid-back atmosphere. Several of the city’s major attractions exhibit Fort Worth’s great pride in its history. The Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District offers a variety of Western entertainment, such as rodeos, a daily cattle drive, authentic Western saloons and Texas cuisine. Fort Worth’s Sundance Square, a cultural and entertainment center for the city, contains many buildings that date back to the late 19th century. The area is named after the infamous Sundance Kid, who frequented the area with Butch Cassidy and other Western figures such as Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday.
