Fort Worth’s Weird History Hotspots
A lot of Texas towns have history. Pass through even the smaller Texas towns and you’ll likely stumble across a local museum, graveyard or old building with a story to tell.
Fort Worth is no exception. It’s brimming with historical anecdotes, so much so that you can barely turn a corner without finding some reminder of its colorful heritage.
Then there’s Fort Worth’s … weird history … for want of a better term. Weird history tourism is a sub branch of the vacation pop culture phenomenon known as dark tourism — the pursuit of out of the way oddities in hard to find places.
Fort Worth is a goldmine for people seeking out these odd historical corners. Here are a few of my favorites.
The Final Resting Place of Clyde Barrow
You’ll probably have heard of Bonnie and Clyde. This gangster couple were fearsome enemies of the police and respectable Fort Worth citizens during the prohibition era. They committed a string of violent robberies, gunning down any police officers who dared apprehend them.
There’s a mystique about the couple which persists to this day. After all, Fort Worth’s annals of history are no exception to the universal rule that “all the world loves an outlaw.”
In 1934, Bonnie and Clyde finally met their fate. Texas Rangers, Frank Hamer and L.A Kindell learned the location of their hiding place and ended their 2 year crime spree with a hail of 167 bullets, rendering them deader than dead.
Dark tourists passing through Fort Worth can find Clyde Barrow buried in a family plot beside his brother Buck Barrow who also happened to have been killed in a showdown with police.
Second Longest Burning Light Bulb
From lights that were extinguished before their time to a light which refuses to dim.
Fort Worth is home to the second longest burning light bulb. For people in hunt of the weird and obtuse, there’s something oddly appealing to a lightbulb which is only the second longest running in existence. It somehow adds to the bulb’s street cred.
Grandiosely dubbed The Eternal Light, the bulb was originally located at the Byers Opera House in Fort Worth where it was first installed in 1908 by an opera stagehand. One hundred and eleven years later, the bulb still burns bright, though its home was transferred to the Livestock Exchange Building in 1977 when the opera building itself was demolished.
It has only been turned off once, briefly, by accident. Other than that, the eternal flame burns on.
The Bad Luck Wedding Dress
Safely stored behind (presumably bad luck blocking) plexiglass, the bad luck wedding dress can be found in Fort Worth’s famous Stockyard Museum.
It’s an odd addition to the museum, not really having a lot to do with Fort Worth’s stockyard heritage. But here it lives, bequeathed to the museum by a superstitious wealthy benefactor, who inherited the dress but wanted nothing whatsoever to do with it!
The Dress is, admittedly, oddly creepy to look at. Made in 1886, it’s a faded ivory dress of frills, ribbons and bows. Something about it exudes a subtle aura of saddened disappointment. It would look quite at home on a (possibly possessed — I’ll leave that to your imagination) life size Victorian era doll.
The dress is reputed to have had four owners over its 136 years of existence. Three of the owners “lost their husbands” (though details of the exact nature of this loss are rather sketchy) and one lady became grievously ill.
While anyone of a superstitious bent is unlikely to want to get too close to this husband-killing piece of attire, it’s a great option for those passing through Fort Worth who happen to enjoy a touch of macabre and old lace.
The Photography Studio of Butch Cassidy Fame
Fort Worth was once a popular stomping ground for Wild West legends. Some of these household names were well-meaning entrepreneurs or adventurers just looking to survive and get ahead in a dangerous time. Others were straight up outlaws.
The Fort Worth Five definitely fall into this latter category. The Fort Worth Five, also known as the “Hole-in-the-Wall Gang” were infamous bank robbers who evaded capture despite local Fort Worth law enforcement’s best efforts. Butch Cassidy was the gang’s most famous member and was considered their dangerous ring leader.
In 1900, the gang made an odd decision. They decided to sit for a photo portrait. The picture is now famous. Five smirking mustachioed dandies sit for the camera on a weirdly incongruous chaise lounge, a hint of a threat smoldering in their eyes.
The picture was actually instrumental in the gang members finally being apprehended, as its presence in the studio’s shop window was noticed by a local Fort Worth detective.
The photo and the studio from which it sprang can be found between Fifth and Sixth Street in Fort Worth’s downtown district.
Fort Worth has a lot to offer conventional historians. It also has much to see if you lean to the more macabre corners of Texas’ long and eventful history. If you’re passing through Fort Worth and looking for a little strangeness, you can’t go wrong with these unusual attractions.
