Fort Worth has beautiful buildings. I would live to have these at home. This building is so unique and I wish I could have gone inside. It is worth the time to just look at the different buildings downtown, such beauty. I hear there is one in NYC but I've never been there so I'm not sure.

Built in 1907, this building is a replica after the one in NYC. Interestingly, the founder of Fort Worth (whom it's named after) is buried under the one in NYC. You can peak in the windows and see a gold leaf cast of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid as well!!!

Walked by this building while walking through downtown Fort Worth. Having been to the Flat Iron building in NYC, I wanted to see how this one compared.

my husband walks by every day at lunch.

I'd rate it a 10cif we could see inside but alas, that will never be. so for now, it's our daily 4.

If you can beat the heat, Ft. Worth has some great architecture including this building. I braved the afternoon temps to walk from my hotel to the Sundance district for another event. Along the way I stopped to view the buildings, including one that was the tallest building west of the Mississippi when completed in 1921. While others were very... More

It really is worth some time to pause and examine this beautiful neo-Renaissance building when you are in the downtown district.I always admire the geometric brick ornamentation, the carved panther heads on the elegant facade and the elaborate marble floor you can glimpse through the doorway.I'm glad to hear that this wonderful structure is being restored.

This is a excellent example of a flatiron building. I would like to visit the interior but it is privately owned. I admire it every time I drive by it.

If your downtown it's worth the drive by to see the building. It's within walking distance of the con. center area

It's a nice triangular building like the more famous one in NYC. If you are near the convention center it's about a block away, if you care to take a look.
