Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District – FREE Guided Walking Tour

January 21 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am CST

Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District – FREE Guided Walking Tour. Hosted by Robert Kelleman – Dallas-Texas History & Culture

Please note that because of the cold weather forecasted for Saturday morning December 17 (36 degrees), this event has been postponed to Saturday, January 21, and we’ll hope for warmer weather then.

Thank you.

Let’s explore the Fort Worth National Stockyards National Historic District, a quintessential Texas history and culture destination with museums, shopping, dining and entertainment.

Fort Worth, Texas is “where the West begins”.

The Fort Worth Stockyards is a historic district that is located in Fort Worth, Texas, north of the central business district. A 98-acre (40 ha) portion encompassing much of the district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places as Fort Worth Stockyards Historic District in 1976. It holds a former livestock market which operated under various owners from 1866.

Step into the West. Fort Worth is where the West begins, and nothing embodies Western heritage better than the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District. From the original brick walkways to the wooden corrals, every inch of the Stockyards tells the true history of Texas’s famous livestock industry.

Come and explore 41 bars & restaurants, 50 shops and over 17 must-see attractions, all surrounded by the rich history of the Fort Worth stockyards. From the world’s only twice-daily cattle drive and historic tours to live music and more, get ready to experience an authentic glimpse of the American West that can only be found here.
