Fort Worth’s Historic Heart
North of downtown, the Stockyards, established in 1893, had become a principal livestock market and the home of two of the country’s largest abattoir and meatpacking enterprises by the early 20th century. Today, it forms part of the heart of the Stockyards, the lively showcase of the city’s western heritage and also a national historic district. Here, you’ll find Billy Bob’s Texas, proudly described as the world’s largest honky-tonk, a draw for both established and rising country-and-western entertainers; stores selling fine western wear (including boots and saddles); and restaurants, from the traditional, such as Cattleman’s Steak House to chef Tim Love’s Lonesome Dove Western Bistro.
