Overview


Fort Worth is called the city "Where the West Begins," and 100 years ago, the neighborhood known as Fairmount was where the south side ended. Now considered inner city, the Fairmount Southside Historic District is actually numerous smaller subdivisions including the largest, the Fairmount addition, and the smallest, the dubiously named Swastika Place. The neighborhoods were home to early merchants, lawyers, judges, artists, and small-business owners-many of whom went on to local and national fame. Today that legacy continues. Fairmount welcomes new generations of urban pioneers and benefits from a neighborhood renaissance that has brought this historically and architecturally significant gem of the city back from the brink of extinction.

Meet the Author


A native Texan and 44-year resident of Fort Worth, Michael S. McDermott has called Fairmount home for 25 years, having been one of the first of the new generation of urban pioneers. The restoration of his 102-year-old home gives testament to his love of all things historical and to his neighborhood, in which his own ancestors added to Fairmount's stories. He was one of the founders of the Fairmount Southside Historic District in 1990, and has served as liaison to the city as historic preservation director. McDermott collected many of the photographs from former and current Fairmount residents.
