Pioneers Rest Cemetery is Fort Worth‘s oldest, historic cemetery. It was established in 1850 with the deaths of two of Major Ripley Arnold‘s children. Arnold was then the commander of Fort Worth. Arnold himself, General Tarrant for whom our county is named and 1500 of Fort Worth‘s earliest pioneers are interred on the park-like grounds.
