Stockyards National Historic District
Although Fort Worth’s moniker of ‘The Wall Street of The West’ has long since passed, the spirit of ‘Cowtown’ lives on in the stockyards, especially with the twice-daily longhorn drive. The old Livestock Exchange Building now hosts a museum that regals visitors with tales of the Chisholm Trail. Visit the Exchange Building on a Friday, and you may be lucky enough to see a cattle auction. What was once a huge industry has slowed to a trickle of longhorns, but exploring the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame and the Texas Trail of Fame – Fort Worth’s version of the Hollywood Walk of Fame – is sure to be an adventure.
