Not Everything is Bigger in Texas

Cowgirl Up!

This a bit of an unsual picture. Kathleen just returned from Fort Worth Texas where she had an exuberant time visiting Family catching up with old school friends. This shows that some “Facilities” are just not Texas Large. This was also the idea of the Cowgirl to whom these boots were attached. The night was filled with loud music, cold cocktails and lots of laughter – a typical night in The Stockyards!

The Fort Worth Stockyards is a historic district that is located in Fort Worth, Texas. The Fort Worth Stockyards now celebrates Fort Worth’s long tradition as a part of the cattle industry and was listed on the National Register as a historical district in 1976. The listing included 46 contributing buildings.

The Stockyards consist of mainly entertainment and shopping venues that capitalize on the “Cowtown” image of Fort Worth. Home to the famous boot making company M.L. Leddy’s which is located in the heart of the Stockyards. The city of Fort Worth is often referred to as “Where the West Begins.”  Many Bars and Nightclubs (including Billy Bob’s Texas) are located in the vicinity. There is also an Opry and a Rodeo. The Fort Worth Stockyards are the last standing stockyards in the United States.
