Fort Worth's prosperity was established when the town became a stop on the Chisholm Trail, and continued when the city became a major railhead. Cultural cognoscenti call it the Museum Capital of the Southwest. Or move up McKinney Avenue, through the Uptown neighborhoods.

Or move up McKinney Avenue, through the Uptown neighborhoods. Across the street the John F. The Fort Worth Stockyards opened infollowed by the arrival of major meatpacking plants, transforming Fort Worth into a major cattle shipping center and one of the country's top livestock markets.

From Knox, head east until the street becomes Henderson Avenue. Fort Worth had become a wealthy city, a cow town to be reckoned with. The cattle that were herded through town more than a century ago still define the city, and its nickname, "Cowtown," persists.

Nicknamed Cowtown, Fort Worth revels in its role as the gateway to the West; the mythic qualities of the American West -- wide-open spaces and even grander dreams -- are still palpable here.
