The Stockyards

The Stockyards occupy a unique and valuable place, as the soul of Fort Worth. The value of this place reaches beyond Fort Worth, to communities of folks who love belt buckles, barrel racing and barbecued brisket. The Stockyards have always adapted to the needs of Fort Worth, reflecting and embracing the changing times. RSM Design has been part of a team working on reviving the historic Fort Worth Stockyards, to define guidelines for restoration, preservation, and new development on the site. Included in our scope was the visioning for the new Stockyards Heritage Trail, a walking path planned for the site. This piece is a collaborative effort between RSM Design, developers, local historians, and preservation experts, and will feature new interpretive and wayfinding signage using repurposed materials from the buildings. This walk guides visitors along historic routes through the site to original artifacts, walkways and historic architecture, deepening the understanding of Fort Worth's history by inviting them into lesser known areas of this important living museum.
