D/FW Metroplex

Tarrant County, Texas

D/FW airport is a few miles north of Bird's Fort, where the first settlement was attempted in 1841. The northwestern frontier had witnessed four years of bloody warfare and the little stockade gave a sense of security to the pioneers with John Neely Bryant who settled about fifteen miles east at what would become Dallas. Nearly another decade of fighting and Statehood passed before the construction of Fort Worth.
