A city that is called “The Cultural Gateway to the American West,” Fort Worth was originally an Army outpost standing on a bluff near the Trinity River.
The city has grown into the fifth largest city in Texas because of its involvement in the deal making that surrounds the oil business along with it’s location near many natural gas reserves. The community is proud of their art deco style buildings and many impressive theatres.
