Summary

It began as a true fort on the Old Chisolm Trail, a location that put Fort Worth in the direct path of the cattle drives of the Old West, making it the perfect spot for the growing ranch industry of the day. The city has experienced many changes, from the 1800s when shootings and muggings in the aptly nicknamed "Hell's Half Acre" were everyday occurrences that caught the attention of folks the likes of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, to becoming one of the country's "Most Livable Communities" proud of its strong cultural heritage. Join Rita Cook as she tells the fascinating story of Fort Worth's past and evolution into the urban center it is today.
