The Ambience of Fort Worth
Stockyards' historic quarter plunges us into a world of cowboys, saloons and western culture. This is not a reconstituted village where actors simulate the lives of people from another era. It's a real neighborhood, with real modern cowboys participating in real rodeos. There are also a lot of musicians, nice bikers and some characters from the past. Those who like to sit and watch passers-by will have hours of fun. If you prefer action, every Friday and Saturday night, the rodeo professionals take to the arena and compete against the most dashing bulls in a two-hour show for the whole family. Just behind it is Billy Bob's Texas, the world's largest honky tonk, who is celebrating his 30th birthday this year. This huge playground can accommodate more than 6000 people. There are bars, a restaurant, game rooms, a giant dance floor. Online dance classes are offered every Thursday. There is also a performance hall frequented by the great names of music and even a small rodeo stadium where the best cowboys can be seen. On Exchange Avenue, there are of course one or two souvenir shops, but also authentic clothing stores where you can dress country from hats to boots and belt buckle. M.L. Leddy's is the most famous place for cowboy boots. People come from all over the world to get custom-made boots. Since they can make only eight pairs a day, the waiting list can last up to a year, and the price can be as high as... $10,000! The Stockyard Hotel is an elegant century-old vestige located in the heart of the district. If it turns you on, book room 305, Bonnie and Clyde's favourite room, because of its excellent view of both the bank and the police station. In the room, one of Bonnie Parker's authenticated pistols is on display. Opposite, a few saloons offer everything you could imagine of the good old Far West, with live music every night. There are also some very good restaurants, including the Lonesome Dove Western Bistro of the famous Iron Chef Time Love.
Fort Worth The new Wild West
Fort Worth's downtown core is modern, safe and vibrant, especially in the Sundance Square quadrilateral, where there are many shops, restaurants and art galleries, including the Sid Richardson Museum, which features a large collection of Old West American artists. To discover just south: Magnolia Avenue, the trendy street of Nearsouthside. A large restaurant, Ellerbe Fine Foods, is elegantly located in an old petrol station. With its superb terrace, impeccable service and great chef Molly McCook, it is a must. In the same street, there is also a vegan restaurant (even in Texas) and a popular cocktail bar, The Usual.
Between animals and museums
Twice a day, at 11:30am and 4pm, the main street changes into a long-horned bull crossing (Longhorn) to pay tribute to the thriving cattle trails that made Fort Worth famous in the late 1800s. Everything represented here is authentic, from saddles of horses to harnesses of bulls. Cowboys are tradespeople who work full time on site. Interestingly, it's a woman who runs the place, the trail boss, as we call her here. At 34, Kristin Jaworski manages the team, animals, educational programs and special events. The National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame, dedicated to the memory of these great women of the Wild West, is located in the museum district of the southwestern part of the city. Temple Grandin, the autistic woman specialized in animal behaviour and personified in cinema by Claire Danes, is one of the last to be inducted into this fascinating temple. This large arts district is also home to some very beautiful museums, including the Amon Carter Museum of American Art, the Kimbell Art Museum and the Modern Art Museum, the second largest in America, in a superb symmetrical building with sleek lines designed by Japanese architect Tadao Ando.
Cultural District, the museum district
An astonishing cultural campus gathers museums of quality, as much for their architecture as for their exhibitions. The Kimbell Art Museum consists of two buildings, the Louis Kahn Building and the Renzo Piano Pavilion, both named after their architect. Egyptian and pre-Columbian antiquities, as well as works from the Renaissance and Impressionist periods are admired... Just across the street, Modern is a splendid building of Tadao Ando dedicated to contemporary art. The neighborhood also boasts the amusementous National Cowgirl Museum and the Amon Carter Museum of American Art, designed by Philip Johnson, which has the largest collection of American photographs in the United State.
Downtown, the cowboy district
Sundance Square, a pleasant square where the locals meet at one of the shaded tables that surrounds the fountain, is the starting point for a walk to City Hall and Fort Worth Water Gardens, an artificial waterfall designed by Philip Johnson.
History of Fort Worth
The history of Fort Worth in the United States is closely linked to the history of northern Texas and the history of the Texas border. In its early days, the fort was an outpost and a barrier against the Amerindian threats of the time. In January 1849, U. S. General William Jenkins Worth, a veteran of the American-Mexican war, proposed the construction of ten forts to mark the western border of Texas from Eagle Pass at the confluence of West Fork and Clear Fork and the Trinity River. William Jenkins Worth died on May 7,1849 of cholera and General William S Harney assumed command and ordered Major Ripley A. Arnold to find a new site to build a fort. On June 6,1849, Arnold established a post on the banks of the Trinity River and named it Camp Worth in honour of the late General Worth.In August 1849, Arnold moved the camp to a promontory overlooking the mouth of the Clear Fork. The U. S. Department of War officially named the post "Fort Worth" on November 14,1849. Pioneers began to settle in the Fort Worth area while Amerindians were still a major threat to them.When the camp was moved to the cliff, Arnold found a George "Press" Farmer who lived there.Farmer and his family were among the first settlers in 1849 in what was then known as the Peter's Colony. He and his wife Jane had built a log cabin on the cliff overlooking the river.The cabin was burned and they were camping on the cliff when Major Ripley Arnold arrived to establish what would become Fort Worth. Farmer became the first canteen and merchant of the region. He continued to participate in the growth of Fort Worth between 1840 and 1860.Other early settlers included Howard W. Peak, Ed Terrell, George W Terrell and Ephraim M. Daggett.When other forts were built further west, the American army evacuated Fort Worth on 17 September 1853. The settlers then decided that they could take possession of the fort site.John Peter Smith opened a school in 1854 with twelve students.Archibald Leonard and Henry Daggett installed the first department stores. Julian Feild opened a flour mill and general store in 1856.The Butterfield Overland Mail and the Southern Pacific Stage Line used the city as their western terminus on the west road to California. Since 1849, the seat of the county had been Birdville, but in 1855 the citizens of Fort Worth decided that the seat of the county should belong to their city. After a long struggle, Fort Worth won the title in 1860 and a stone county courthouse was built. After a delay due to the civil war, the courthouse was not finished until the 1870s. Fort Worth had slaves before the Civil War. In 1860, Tarrant County had 5170 white people and 850 slaves. The majority of citizens were in favour of secession of the Union and Tarrant County had voted for disunity with the North.The Civil War almost wiped Fort Worth off the map in the 1860s.The city's population dropped to 175 inhabitants and the city was only gradually revived in the 1870s. In 1872, William Jesse Boaz, William Henry Davis and Jacob Samuels opened general stores. In 1873, Khleber M. Van Zandt founded a company that became the National Bank of Fort Worth in 1884.Bars and saloons such as the Saloon Tom Prindle and the Steele Tavern have welcomed many travellers. In 1876, the boss of crime in Denver, Colorado, Soapy Smith arrived in Fort Worth and began his criminal career exploiting his fraudulent sales. Bars and saloons and weekly newspapers are beginning to be plentiful. But it was the livestock industry that really exploded at Fort Worth in Cowtown.Fort Worth was a rest stop for the cowboys who drove their herds from south Texas longhorndu to Abilene, Kansas. Many northern livestock buyers established their headquarters in Fort Worth and new businesses such as "Pendery and Wilson's Liquor Wholesale" or "B. C. Evans dry goods" and "Martin B. Loyd's Exchange Office" moved into the city. In 1873, a municipal council was created and W. P. Burts became the first mayor of Fort Worth. For cowboys, Fort Worth was the last major stop to rest and fill up supplies before crossing the Red River.(the Red River) in Indian territory. As seen above, between 1866 and 1890, more than four million head of cattle passed through the cowtown of Fort Worth, which soon had its own, unrecognizable entertainment district, several blocks south of the courthouse and known throughout the West as the "half acre of hell". When the railway finally arrived in 1876, Fort Worth became a major shipping station for cattle. This contributed to the construction of the Union Stockyards in 1887, about two and a half miles north of Tarrant County Courthouse, and was operational in 1889.But the Union Stockyards did not have enough money to buy enough livestock and attract local farmers. Their president Mike C. Hurley invited a wealthy Boston investor, Greenleif Simpson, in the hope that he would invest in Stockyards Union.When Simpson arrived at the Stockyards, heavy rains and a railway strike required more livestock than usual to be stored in the pens. Seeing this, he decided that Fort Worth was a good deal and made plans to invest.Simpson invited other investors to join him, including Boston neighbour Louville V. Niles, whose principal business was Meatpacking. On April 27,1893, Simpson purchased Union Stockyards for $133,333.33 and changed the name to "Fort Worth Stock Yards Company".It quickly became clear that instead of shipping livestock to other markets, it would be much more desirable to keep some operations in Fort Worth by having local slaughterhouses. In 1900, businessmen, Armour & Co. and Swift & Co. have decided to build plants adjacent to the livestock pens.Construction began in 1902.Armour chose the northern site and Swift started to build on the southern part of the site, which will be the Livestock Exchange and Hotel. Work on the new Livestock Exchange Building, as well as silos and barns, also began in 1902 at their present location.The new building has been designed to accommodate the many livestock commission companies, telegraph offices, railway offices and other ancillary companies.
The Fort Worth Stock Yards Company now includes the two slaughterhouses adjacent to the river next to the livestock yards north of Fort Worth.In 1909, the town of Fort Worth annexed the new town of Les Stockyards except for slaughterhouses and the packing house. Armour and Swift, who bought 265,279 cattle, 128,934 hogs and 40,160 sheep, injected more than $6 million into the local economy.The building of the Livestock Exchange is known as "The Wall Street of the West". Due to the success of the slaughterhouses, the need for a show has become evident. In 1907, the construction of a large Coliseum began and was completed in just 88 working days, in time for the inauguration of the Feeders & Breeders Show.The Colosseum, now known as the Cowtown Coliseum, was the first indoor rodeo. Slaughterhouses continued to thrive despite droughts and floods.In 1911, after two catastrophic fires that killed a large number of parked cattle, reconstruction was carried out using non-flammable materials wherever possible. In 1911, a new town, Niles City, grew up around the cattle parks.Niles City was known as "the richest little city in the world", with a land value of $30 million.In 1923, Fort Worth annexed this estate. During the First World War, in 1917, Fort Worth Stockyards was the largest horse and donkey market in the world.Military officers from Allied countries came to buy the animals and thus support the war effort.During the Second World War, Fort Worth's livestock yards treated 5,277,496 head of cattle making 1944 the record year for the entire operation. In the 1960s, livestock sales began to decline and by 1969 they had fallen to 1,045,158 head.In 1986, sales reached their lowest level with 57 181 animals. One of the biggest factors behind the decline in slaughterhouse activity at Fort Worth was the rise of the trucking industry on newly paved roads aft er World War II.Railways have lost their bulk transport due to the advantage of lower operating costs and greater flexibility in road transport.This was a completely new way of marketing livestock. Armour & Co. and Swift & Co. were in possession of huge obsolete factories with high operating costs, salaries and administrative costs. Armour was the first to close its Fort Worth plant in 1962 and Swift landed in 1971. The partial demolition continued over the years after several fires. The Armour office building was demolished, but the Swift headquarters building was used to build a popular restaurant in the 1970s. Local auctions continued in the stockyards in the Stockyards area but the volume declined until it was no longer profitable to continue this business. This lively part of Fort Worth's history has had a difficult time, and its decline continued. In 1976, the North Fort Worth Historical Society, founded by Charlie and Sue McCafferty, was tasked with ensuring the legacy and preservation of the heritage. The Fort Worth Stockyards National Historical District was also established in 1976 and a large number of buildings and premises in the area have been restored including the Livestock Exchange and Coliseum. The historic headquarters building Swift & Co. underwent almost total restoration. In 1989, the Northern Fort Worth Historical Society opened the Slaughterhouse Museum in the historic Stock Exchange building.The weekly livestock auction has not been in existence for several years, but the livestock parks, through the exchange building, continue to host events and auctions of livestock breeds such as the Longhorn. This relatively recent Honky Tonk has a very rich contemporary history since its creation It is located in the historic "STOCKYARDS" district of FORT WORTH.This Night Club/Honky Tonk/Dance Hall claims to be the world's greatest Honky Tonk "THE WORLD' S LARGEST HONKY TONK". It is impressive in size with its 12,000 m2 of floor space. At the time, the biggest Honky Tonk in Texas was the "Gilley's" in Houston and Dallas (or was filmed "Urban Cowboy" with John Travolta) but the "Gilley's" was only one-third of Billy Bob's. The "Gilley's" was the biggest Honky Tonk in Texas. The building was built in the 1910s and cost $183,500. The premises and outbuildings could hold 1257 animal stalls and 1200 rodeo spaces. Currently the BBT can accommodate 6000 people. Billy Bob's Texas opened its doors on April 1,1981, producing Larry Gatlin and the Gatlin Brothers as first stars. Since the first week, other Country Music artists have performed such as than Waylon Jennings, Janie Frickie and Willie Nelson; and it continues. There are several dance floors with orchestra and DJ's, different stages for shows and concerts, arcades of games with slot machines, a flurry of billiard tables, more than 20 bars, various restaurants, a souvenir shop and above all a small arena of rodeo in which one attends, weekends, Bullriding shows with famous cowboys. On Thursday evening, dance teacher Wendell Nelson and his wife teach Country Line Dance in the evening, which is not very common in the States.The Billy Bob's has won a multitude of awards and prizes: Best Club of the Year by the Academy of Country Music or Country Music Association..... A boost to the BBT was given in the early 1980s by the Ewing clan of the TV series Dallas. Billy Bob's Billy Bob's was also used for making movies like: Baja Oklahoma with Willie Nelson and Susan Sarandon or Over The Top with Sylvester Stallone or Pure Country with George Strait and Susan Sarandon. Episodes of Walker Texas Ranger were also filmed there as well as other scenes for TV series. The mirror above the seat of the Honky Tonk Dance floor comes from the movie "Rhinestone" with Dolly Parton and Sylvester Stallone.Country artists, at the time practically unknown, had their first chance in the Honky Tonk, among them George Strait, Alan Jackson, Travis Tritt or Reba McEntire who played with their band regularly every Wednesday or Saturday night on one of the 2 BBT stages.Although Country Music is the queen in these places, many other artists have performed on the stages such as: James Brown, Marvin Gaye, BB King, Tina Turner, Bob Hope, ZZ Top. Hank Williams Jr. holds the record for the number of beers sold during its event with 16,000 bottles, a dream come true for the organizers of our parties! Next to the saloon, there is a wall of celebrities with the fingerprints of passing stars going from Garth Brooks to Johnny Cash and I'm passing by and the best. Another special feature is the possibility to buy CD's and DVD's from the shop of forty or so albums by artists who have performed at BBT and recorded live, all entitled "Live At Billy Bob's Texas". More than 22 million people have visited Billy Bob's Texas since 1981. The Stockyards District was renovated and reopened on April 1,2011.There are mainly shops for clothing (mainly western) and souvenir shops and places of entertainment with an emphasis on the western theme of the former 19th century Fort Worth.Numerous historical hotels, bars, night clubs, restaurants, grill restaurants and famous steakhouses are present throughout the district, in addition to the station with its old steam train of the Vintage Railroad Grapevine. In the "White Elephant Saloon" dozens of customers have nailed their Stetson hats to the ceiling and a multitude of statuettes and elephant trinkets can be seen.Rodeos are organized all year round, accompanied by a nightlife tinged with Country Music.There are also museums, such as the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame and the Stockyards Museum, located in the Livestock Exchange Building of 1902.Walking tours of the area are organized, as well as horseback riding tours along the banks of the Trinity River.
