Gotta Check it Out
Less than 5 miles south when you hop on Main St. you'll find the famous Fort Worth Stockyards. Located just 3 miles from Fort Worth's central business district, The Stockyards is a 98-acre portion of the city and a vacation destination for families across America. It holds a former livestock market which operated under various owners from 1866.
The arrival of railroads in 1876 made the area a very important livestock center. Fort Worth Union Stockyards opened for business on January 19, 1890, covering 206 acres. On February 7, the Fort Worth Dressed Meat and Packing Company was founded. This facility was operated without profit until purchased by G. W. Simpson of Boston. To produce revenue, they reached out to the Swift and Armour companies to establish packing houses.
The Fort Worth Stockyards now celebrates Fort Worth's long tradition as a part of the cattle industry and was listed on the National Register as a historic district in 1976. The listing included 46 contributing buildings and one other contributing structure. Recorded Texas Historic Landmarks within the district include the entrance sign, the Livestock Exchange Building, and the Thannisch Block Building housing the Stockyards Hotel. State Antiquities Landmarks also include the entrance sign as well as the Armour & Swift Plaza and the Cowtown Coliseum.
The Stockyards consist of mainly entertainment and shopping venues that capitalize on the "Cowtown" image of Fort Worth. Home to the famous boot making company M.L. Leddy's, which is located in the heart of the Stockyards and The Maverick Fine Western Wear and Saloon where customers "can' belly up' to the bar, relax and have a cold beer while in the Stockyards; just like they did in the days of the big cattle drives", as they shop around the store.[ The city of Fort Worth is often referred to as "Where the West Begins."
Many bars and nightclubs (including Billy Bob's Texas) are located in the vicinity, and the area has a Western motif. There is also an opry and the weekly Stockyards Championship Rodeo. The Library of Congress states in their notes ~ "They are the last standing stockyards in the United States." Some volunteers still run the cattle drives through the stockyards, a practice developed in the late 19th century by the frontiersman Charles "Buffalo" Jones.
