Death in Downtown Cowtown
Did you know Hell’s Half Acre was used as a generic term for the red-light districts in frontier towns throughout the West? None were more violent and dangerous than Fort Worth’s, where the streets and back alleys were regularly stained with blood.
Known as a respite from life in the saddle, the crossroads town of Fort Worth was once frequented by some of the most notorious and dangerous figures in U.S. history. The town’s underworld teemed with the worst characters in the Wild West, including infamous outlaws, gunmen, and bandits, some of whom met with tragic and violent ends. Some believe that the restless spirits of those who met their end in Fort Worth still linger, unable to pass on until their stories are told and their presence acknowledged.
