Fort Worth in Tarrant County, Texas — The American South (West South Central)
Fort Worth 1849-1853
Log buildings with earthen floors surrounding a parade ground were built for stables, housing, a hospital, commissary, kitchens, laundries, and sutler's store. Two houses for Commanders were constructed.
In September 1853, Fort Worth was closed and the troops moved to other postings. Settlers moved into the buildings or tore them down and used the materials elsewhere. These buildings and these early settlers were the foundation of the city of Fort Worth.
