This public housing development constructed in the 1940's and named for the founder of Fort Worth, sits very close to the original town site.  It was demolished to construct the corporate campus for RadioShack, which later became the Tarrant County College Trinity River Campus.  These two story, red brick apartment buildings were arranged with the fronts of the apartments facing the streets and the rears facing courtyards and playgrounds.  Many old oak and pecan trees are present throughout the site and as many as possible will be preserved.
