Although Fort Worth has the trappings of any major metropolitan city - shopping malls, suburbs, and office towers - it is enriched by the many buildings that reflect a colorful and diverse heritage shaped by the frontier, the railroad and other major industries, cattle drives and ranching, oil, and both the poverty of the Depression and the largesse of various benefactors.
Presenting the city's most architecturally significant buildings, this volume focuses on historical buildings whose design and background reflect periods of the city's history, but whose stories are not always well known today. Fort Worth's legendary landmarks demonstrate the brick-and-mortar responses the community made to the forces that shaped its history.
