We invite you to explore our site and through it learn about the largest historic neighborhood in the southwestern United States. Founded in 1978, the Fairmount Neighborhood Association is one of the most active neighborhood associations in Fort Worth, Texas. Association volunteers are dedicated to improving the quality of life for all Fairmount residents.
Located in the heart of Fort Worth, Texas lies the largest historic neighborhood in the southwestern United States. Fairmount, with more than one thousand contributing structures, is comprised of mostly bungalow and four square homes from the late 1800s through the early 1920s.
Join us on Mother's Day weekend, May 9-10, noon-6 p.m. both days, to tour seven wonderful properties in the Fairmount Historic District. We have something for everyone this year including a new build, a work in progress, a house celebrating its centennial year and a bonus property, THE LOFTS, will also be a part of the tour.
You can purchase tickets now on our website. Tickets are $15 each now or $20 each on the weekend of the tour. Online ticket sales end at midnight on May 8. We hope you can join us and enjoy the tour!

The American Four-Square home of Bob Zetnick and Ken Davis at 1412 S. Adams presents a soothing oasis just two blocks from the hustle of Magnolia’s restaurant district. The home's two-story, cube-shaped exterior, painted in a soothing gray-green palette, compliments plantings such as Mountain Laurel, which are also in cool and neutral tones, with a few bright autumnal accents to mark changing seasons.
The front yard of 1412, though compact, is divided into “stages” and areas that use transitions and ornament to draw the eye in and upward to the wide and welcoming front porch. The couple has incorporated a large variety of Texas native and adaptable plants into the landscape. Their first major installation, a Mountain Atlas Cedar, anchors the design in scale, shading and concept. A visual and auditory counterpoint to the slender conifer on the left, is a curved, neoclassical lions’ head fountain burbling on the right. Traveling up the stone path, the eye is drawn to potted plants and petrified wood on the steps and porch. The combination of landscaping, hardscaping and decor makes the Zetnick/Davis design the choice for the April Fairmount Yard of the Month.
