Getting to Know Fort Worth
Points of Interest In Our Hometown
Silverado Fort Worth is located in the 16th-largest city in the US and the fifth-largest city in the state of Texas. Our historical city is considered to be a cultural gateway into the American West. The city was established in 1849 as an Army outpost on a bluff overlooking the Trinity River. Today Fort Worth still embraces its Western heritage, like the famous Fort Worth Stockyards and real-life cowboys, and the annual cattle drive down Main Street.
Three of the top rated museums in the US are nearby. The Kimbell Art Museum is considered to have one of the best collections in the world, and housed in what is widely regarded as one of the world's foremost works of modern architecture. The Amon Carter Museum houses one of the most extensive collections of American art in the world, in a building designed by Philip Johnson. Also of note, is the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.
