Fort Worth Tour:
Drovers, stretching their cattle drives from San Antonio or the Rio Grande, came to Fort Worth on their way up to Abilene, Kansas. They went to the Kansas Pacific Railway, where their cattle would be loaded for market. Fort Worth was the locale where supplies, rest and entertainment could be enjoyed at what came to be known as 'Hell's Half Acre'. Before departing for Chisholm Trail and traversing the Red River into wild, untamed territory inhabited by Indians, cattle drovers stopped to enjoy what only the entertainment district of Fort Worth could provide. Millions of longhorn cattle were moved through Fort Worth between 1866 and 1890. The history of these cattle drives may be discovered by visiting Cattle Drive Visitors Center, Stockyard Station, Horse and Mule Barn and Livery, Cow Town Museum, the Livestock Exchange, Billy Bob's, and many other historical adventures along the way.
