Cities of Tarrant County
The City of Fort Worth, the most typically Texan of all Texas cities — began as a tiny outpost on a lonely frontier. Today, this metropolitan area of more than 800,000 people blends its cattle and oil heritage seamlessly with an ever-growing, diverse array of new businesses and industries. Home of the TCU Horned Frogs and 7 other Universities and Colleges, Fort Worth is a community with a rich heritage and an ever growing future. The fertile, game-rich land surrounding the banks of the Trinity River had long been a favorite hunting ground for Native Americans in the area, but it soon proved irresistible to settlers as well. In 1843 the chiefs of the surrounding tribes came to the negotiating table along with Gen. Edward H. Tarrant and George W. Terrell, a treaty was made under which the Native Americans were to remain to the west of a line traced passing through the future site of Fort Worth. The line marked “Where the West Begins” — giving Fort Worth its famous slogan.
