The Texas Trail of Fame
The Texas Trail of Fame is a virtual chronological history of our Western Heritage in the United States, Texas, and the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District.
To those men, women and groups who made a significant contribution to the preservation of the history and grandeur of the Western way of life, their “Bronze Star” is ceremonially placed in the walkways of the Stockyards National Historic District.
The Bronze Stars are designed to represent an old fashion Marshall’s badge with the recipient’s name inlaid in the star. The markers are uniformly placed in the sidewalks and public thoroughfares throughout the National Historic District.
There are 116 bronze markers of inductees such as: John Wayne, Will Rogers, Zane Grey, Bose Ikard, Tad Lucas, Roy Rogers, Dale Evans, Charles Goodnight, Oliver Loving, C.C. Slaughter, Juan Sequin, Bob Wills, Bill Pickett, Frederic Remington, and Quanah Parker.
When you visit the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District, take a moment to walk the Trail of Fame and pay homage to these true Pioneers of the Western way of life.
