Fort Worth is a city in as well as the county seat of Tarrant County, Texas. Home to over 792,000 residents in the city proper and a principal city in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, Forth Worth is currently the fifth largest city in the state by population and the 17th largest city in the entire United States. Fort Worth is one of largest cultural and economic centers of the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington Metropolitan Statistical Area, after Dallas – this area is colloquially referred to as the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
As the name suggests, Fort Worth was originally founded as an army outpost, near the Trinity River, and was built to help protect new settlers to the region. As more army personnel were moved into the fort, due mainly to an increased interest in homesteading in Texas, a small town sprung up around the fort to provide housing and basic needs to soldiers and their families. Though the fort has long since been retired, Fort Worth is a major city and metropolitan area in Texas, and the city’s growth has been tremendous since its founding in 1849.
