Fort Worth Quick Guide

Fort Worth is said to be the more laid-back and traditional half of "The Metroplex," as the Dallas-Fort Worth area is known. But this "Cowtown" is quite proud of its cowboy heritage and western history. The City of Fort Worth has come a long way from its days as a military camp, named in honor of General William Jenkins Worth - a native New Yorker - who was a decorated army officer of that era.

And the city has surpassed its former heyday as a stop along the Chisholm Trail, when cattle drives and ranching, provided the base for the economic boom this city would enjoy. It even survived its reputation as "Hell's Half Acre," when saloons and dance halls put the "wild" in the Wild West.

Once the railroad came to town in 1876 and contributed to the growth of the Fort Worth Stockyards into a major livestock center, the city never looked back on the less prosperous times brought on by the Civil War. It continued to grow into what is now the 18th largest city in America, with an economy driven by the aerospace, agriculture, finance, processing, manufacturing, petroleum and transportation industries.

Fort Worth's municipal headquarters is located at 1000 Throckmorton St., and is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. Residents can get help with many common requests for city services by calling the City Switchboard at (817) 392-CALL (2255).
