Compare electricity plans in Fort Worth, Texas
Fort Worth, Texas is home to more than 777,000 residents and is part of the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area. Throughout history, Fort Worth has seen everything from Bonnie and Clyde's hideout at the Stockyards Hotel to President John F. Kennedy's last public speech at a Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce breakfast before his fateful visit to Dallas on November 22, 1963. The Fort Worth Zoo was the first zoo in the state, opening in 1909, and the Texas Motor Speedway in Fort Worth is one of the largest motor racing facilities in the U.S., with capacity for more than 150,000 people.
Though Fort Worth started out as only a small Army outpost in 1849 before it became a stop along the Chisholm Trail cattle drive, it became the fastest-growing large city in the U.S. from 2000-2006, in part because of the oil and natural gas reserves found underground—which is great news for Fort Worth utilities. Top employers in Fort Worth include Lockheed Martin, Naval Air Station Joint Reserve Base Fort Worth and the Fort Worth Independent School District. It was even voted one of America's Most Livable Cities in 2007.
