“Where the West Begins” is an apt moniker for Fort Worth, whose Western heritage dates to the fort established by Maj. Ripley A. Arnold in 1849 at the confluence of the West Fork and Clear Fork of the Trinity River. Fast-forward 166 years, and Fort Worth now stands as the nation’s 16th largest city.
