Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District
Business/organization type: 
In 1976, Charlie and Sue McCafferty founded the North Fort Worth Historical Society to preserve Fort Worth's livestock heritage. This new venture helped establish the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District and bring about the restoration of landmarks including the Livestock Exchange Building, the Coliseum, and the former Swift & Co. headquarters. In 1989, the North Fort Worth Historical Society opened the Stockyards Museum in the historic Exchange Building. Today, the museum hosts thousands of visitors from all over the world each year and is constantly growing its facilities and its collection. True to its history, the Stockyards still hosts the world’s only twice-daily cattle drive, and every week, thousands of head of cattle are sold from the Exchange Building by satellite video. All this – plus more than a hundred new shopping, dining and entertainment venues – make the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District one of Texas’ most popular tourist destinations.
