Too funny! Yes, the Forth Worth Stockyards are historical, the stockyards had and still have a train rail that runs through it. It was a hub for trading and shipping cattle in the 1800's. They still have national Rodeos there in the Arena and at the Will Rodgers Coliseum. Now it is bascially a tourist area, with bars (the one from "Walker, Texas Ranger" TV series.The Stockman Hotel which you can't get into unless you book 1,000 years in advance, and shops and resturants. Oh and bars, like a million bars. They also have THE best BBQ at Riscky's Check ou the link if you are interested on reading more. We are very big history buffs, not that I retain a lot of what I've learned, but enough to sound like I know a lot
