CALL US TODAY - (817)-965-0216

The most significant historic area in the Southwest is located in the Fort Worth area. The Fairmount Historic District, which lies adjacent to Southside, has more than 1,000 buildings and homes dating from the late 1800s through the early 1920s.

The Fairmount/Southside Historic District is a mixed-use neighborhood that epitomizes the early 20th-century streetcar suburb, with a variety of housing types and linked institutional and commercial structures. 

The boundaries of the region form a rectangle about 375 acres (or 0.6 square miles) in size, and Fairmount was built as a middle-class residential community between 1890 and 1938. The single-family home is the most prevalent structure, with wood frame bungalows being the most popular style.

The Four Square plan is found in many variations throughout the District. Fairmount/Southside’s most magnificent houses are concentrated in the District’s eastern sections, and they display a range of architectural styles.

There were discovered to be 1,016 contributing buildings, one contributing structure, and 425 non-contributing structures in the survey conducted as part of the application for National Register of Historic Places status.

Bungalows or boxy foursquare houses predominate, although the region is varied, with brick and stone manors next to more modest residences. The Fairmount Neighborhood Association holds indoor visits each year.

The historic district of Fairmount-Southside encompasses about 350 acres in the city’s downtown. According to the local homeowners association, it is the largest historic district in the southwestern United States. The Texas Historical Commission gave it that name during streetcar days.

There are a number of restrictions to follow if you want to make renovations to a property outside in Asbury Park. Many people live in properties built before World War 2, whereas many predate the First World War. The Lipscomb Street and Chase Court areas are notable for their high concentration of historic landmarks.

The Johnstown Public Hospital and its associated medical center are on Main Street and Allen Avenue. This is a major source of employment in the region. It is not, however, the only medical facility in the region.

The northwestern corner of Fort Worth is home to All Saints Medical Center, which is a hospital-owned by Baylor Scott and White. Cook Children’s Medical Center and the Medical City Fort Worth facility are also located here.

From the local Ronald McDonald House to Cook Children’s Urgent Care, and everything in between, you’ll discover everything you need. Children with severe issues can be treated at Cook Children’s Pediatric Emergency Department. The Texas Rehabilitation Hospital of Fort Worth is located on 8th Avenue where it bends and then crosses Interstate 30.
