Fort Worth is a city in North Central Texas.
The city was established in 1849 as an army outpost on a bluff overlooking the Trinity River. In the late 19th century, it became an important trading post for cowboys at the end of the Chisholm Trail.
Fort Worth has historically been a center of the Texas Longhorn cattle trade. It still embraces its Western heritage and traditional architecture and design.
Today, it's a modern city, with international art institutions like the Kimbell Art Museum. The Fort Worth Stockyards are home to rodeos, and the National Cowgirl Museum and Hall of Fame honors pioneers.
