[J. B. Williamson House, Harrison County]

Description: The J. B. Williamson House is located on Hynson Springs Road west of Marshall in Harrison County. The house was built during the 1840s or earlier as a dog-trot log cabin. It was occupied by pioneers, farmers, and sharecroppers before being purchased as part of a parcel by Capt. G. C. Dial, a former army soldier, founder, and patriot of the Texas Republic. Dial sold a large tract to S. D. Rainey, who traded it to Martha and A. Judson Gibbs. In 1867, J. B. Williamson bought the "Dial, Rainey, and Gibbs Place." J. B. Williamson was a lawyer and district judge. During 1872-73, Williamson ordered the renovations which enlarged the cabin and added the Greek Revival architectural elements. His daughter and son-in law, Eunice and W. H. Attebery, acquired the home later and established the largest peach orchards in Texas on the property. In 1962, the D. H. Greggs of Houston bought the home, restored it, and secured the Texas Medallion and a listing on the National Register of Historic Places. The Greggs donated the house to the Harrison County Historical Society in 1982, which continues to preserve the property.

City of Fort Worth Texas Historical Marker

Description: Texas historical marker on the lawn of the Tarrant County Courthouse. The site of the original fort 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.
