Monument Commemorating the Founding of Fort Worth

Date: unknown
Creator: Henderson, C. L.
Description: The monument commemorating the fort is a bronze casting set in a large granite stone located at the northwest corner of Belknap and Houston Streets. The site was selected by Major Ripley Arnold and Colonel Johnson. The post was referred to as Fort Worth although it was not formally designated as a fort until several months after it was established. Arnold served under William Jenkins Worth at the Battle of Monterey and his admiration for the general was so great that they decided to name the new post Fort Worth in his honor. The fort was abandoned as a military post in 1853, but the civilians who lived and had businesses in the vicinity took over the barracks, officers' homes, stables and made business establishments. In this way the fort became the nucleus of the present-day city of Fort Worth.
