The Spirit of the Modern West Is Central to Fort Worth’s National Historic Stockyards District’s $500 Million Redevelopment

Once the largest livestock market in the country during the Cattle Drive Era, over the last 30 years Fort Worth’s National Historic Stockyards District has evolved into a tourist destination founded upon Western authenticity. Today, the storied neighborhood is undergoing a multi-million-dollar redevelopment that is bringing the neighborhood into a new era.

The Stockyards Heritage Development Company, a partnership between The Hickman Properties and Majestic Realty Company, announced plans to redevelop the neighborhood in 2014 with new retail, dining, hotel and residential offerings designed to preserve the district’s rich history with an elevated aesthetic.

The revitalized space preserves the architecture of the historic barns, with haylofts and catwalks intact. Click to read more at
