Stockyards and Historic North Side

The plants and surrounding stockyards became one of the largest slaughtering and packing facilities in the country. The area attacted thousans of immigrant workers, while at the same time preserving Fort Worth's unique cowboy culture.

Walking Tour Tips: Summer The heat is intensified in the canyons of a city, don't be embarrassed to bring bottled water and wear the most efficient sun protection that you feel is necessary. Hats and other sun protection will let you take your mind off the weather and enjoy the tour. There will be ample opportunities to stand in the shade and a few places to sit down during the tour.
Walking Tour Tips: Winter Cold wind blowing between buildings can increase the "chill factor." It is far more comfortable to carry gloves or extra clothing in the warm spots than to be without them when they are needed.
