The Fort Worth Stockyards

Stockyards of Ft. Worth 

Fort Worth, Texas is home to some famous Cowboys and maintains “The Cowboy Way,” with the famous Stockyards where they run Longhorn cattle twice daily down the streets just as Fort Worth did over one hundred years ago for today's visiting tourist. Fort Worth host features like Billy Bobs, the grand dance hall of modern ages, Hell’s Half Acre and the renowned White Elephant Saloon, once owned by F.A. Borodino in the 300 block of Main Street. Western card shark — Luke Short ran the gambling tables for Borodino of the White Elephant to the likes of famous men on the western frontier like Bat Masterson, Wyatt Earp, Charlie Coe and Ft. Worth’s local bad boy Timothy Isaiah Courtright. A bitter feud grew between Courtright, a former City Marshall of Fort Worth known by his nickname “Long Hair Jim” and “Little Luke” Short. On the night of February 8th, 1887 Courtright called Short out which turned into a gun fight on Main Street as bullets flew and shots echo the street.
