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!

Unless you were one of the lucky ones who bought a Fairmount home with windows already restored, you can probably tell how windy it is outside from the comfort of your couch. Old windows that have been left to deteriorate or left to the bonds of paint and screws are not our friends in the winter and they can be a real headache when neglected. But the silver lining in all of this is knowing the adverse effects of neglected windows can be reversed.
