Did you know...
In the early 1870s, not content to watch longhorns thunder through on cattle drives to Kansas railheads, Fort Worth decided to become a railhead. In 1873, after the original railroad backers went bankrupt, a determined group of citizens banded together to finish a 26-mile link to the Texas & Pacific Railroad. In 1876, the T&P's state land grant was to expire. The railroad had to reach Fort Worth before the legislature adjourned. Residents worked around the clock to beat this deadline, and on July 19, 1876, the first train pulled into town, establishing Fort Worth as a shipping point.
