About Fort Worth

Fort Worth, Texas is a city with a unique blend of western heritage and modern culture. Fort Worth was originally built as an outpost along the Trinity River marking the beginning of the western frontier. The historical significance of this is still appreciated today with Fort Worth's city slogan "Where the West begins".

Fort Worth was established November 14, 1849 and named in honor of General Worth of the Mexican-American War. As the cattle industry boomed, Fort Worth became the center of the cattle drives. Fort Worth was the last city on the Chisholm Trail before a 500-mile stretch of wilderness to the railheads in Kansas. Its location on the Chisholm Trail earned the city its still popular nickname "Cowtown".

In 1876 the Texas and Pacific Railway arrived in Fort Worth, ushering along an era of growth. However, along with the growth, problems began to arise. Fort Worth was still the last city before a three-month trek to Kansas and it began to attract a rough crowd. Fort Worth developed an area referred to as Hell's Half Acre, the biggest collection of bars, saloons and honkey tonks south of Dodge City, Kansas. Crime was rampant, shootings and brawls were a common occurrence. After a series of major reforms spurred by several events, including a shootout on Main Street, Fort Worth shut down Hell's Acre.

Today Fort Worth is the 5th largest city in Texas and the 16th largest city in the nation. With attractions such as the world-renowned Cultural District, the Stockyards National Historic District and the beautiful downtown Sundance Square everyone can experience Fort Worth's blend of western heritage and modern culture.
