Fort Worth Stockyard Exchange - Before the establishment of a railway system throughout the state, Texas cattle drivers made the treacherous journey up the Chisholm Trail to sell their livestock in Abilene, Kansas. Howard Hawks dramatizes the history of the trail in this 1948 Academy Award nominee starring John Wayne as the pioneering rancher who makes the first journey. Fort Worth’s historic stockyard exchange was the final junction for real-life drovers ON THE CHISHOLM TRAIL before crossing the Red River into Native American territories. The Fort Worth Stockyards are the last surviving stockyards in the United States and are listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Arrive at the Stockyards early to watch an authentic cattle drive down the brick streets or enjoy a steak at one of the numerous steakhouses in the district. Official Fort Worth Stockyards Website.
