A Taste of Fort Worth, Texas

did you know?
DID YOU KNOW THESE FACTS ABOUT FORT WORTH?

  1. Fort Worth is the sixteenth-largest city in the United States of America and the fifth-largest city in the state of Texas. Located in North Central Texas, just Southeast of the Panhandle. According to the 2010 census estimates, Fort Worth had a population of 727,575.

  2. The town Fort Worth went from a sleepy outpost to a bustling town when it became a stop along the legendary Chisholm Trail, the dusty path on which millions of head of cattle were driven North to market.

  3. The influx of black residents excluded from the business end of town and the nicer residential areas, Fort Worth's black citizens, who numbered some 7,000 out of a total population of 50,000 around 1900, settled into the south end of town. Though some joined in the profitable vice trade (to run, for instance, the Black Elephant Saloon), many others found legitimate work and bought homes.

  4. When local radio station KOAI 107.5 FM, now KMVK, dropped its smooth jazz format, fans set up smoothjazz1075.com, an internet radio station, to broadcast smooth jazz for disgruntled fans. There are a couple internet radio shows in the Fort Worth area, like DFDubbIsHot and The Broadband Brothers.

  5. Major companies based in Fort Worth include AMR (and subsidiaries American Airlines and American Eagle Airlines), the John Peter Smith Hospital, RadioShack the BNSF Railway and Lockheed Martin.

  6. Fort Worth has a humid Continental climate. The hottest month of the year is July, when the average high temperature is 97 F, and overnight low temperatures average 72 F, giving an average temperature of 84 F. The coldest month of the year is January, when the average high temperature is 32 F, and low temperatures average 21 F.
