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.
RAIN or SHINE, 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 for $20 each on the weekend of the tour, May 9-10, from noon-6 p.m. at SiNaCa Studios, 1013 W. Magnolia Ave. Online order ticket sales are also picked up here. If possible, please bring your receipt with you if picking up an online ticket order. We hope you enjoy the tour!
Fairmount has had 32 great years of Home Tours and this year's plans are no different. Rain or shine, Fairmount residents plan to welcome guests into the neighborhood to view 7 awesome properties open to the public from noon-6 p.m. this weekend, May 9-10.
As we all know, Texas weather can be unpredictable, so we ask everyone to use their own judgement and watch the weather reports, always err on the side of caution and do not take any risks. Rain has been forecast for the weekend with a slight possibility that the weather could be severe at times. In the event of severe weather conditions, please seek shelter and stay safe and wait out the storm before attempting to go out and see the houses.
Our homeowners would also ask that due to the planned rain, guests wear comfortable shoes that are easy to remove to protect the floors in the houses. Booties will also be provided when possible.
We thank you for supporting our great neighborhood and we look forward to seeing everyone this weekend.

Saturday, May 9 - Line-up begins at 9:30 a.m. - Parade begins at 10 a.m.
by Pat Bradley, parade coordinator
We may not have 76 trombones leading the parade, but the Fairmount Home Tour Parade is something that should not be missed. You can be a part of the celebration as a participant in the parade or by cheering curb side. Get your friends and neighbors together and celebrate this great event.
If you feel creative, design and decorate a float, bicycle or vehicle for the parade. Past events have been very colorful. Please contact parade coordinator, Pat Bradley, for participation details.

The weather has been wonderful, the grass is green and flowers are blooming—that can only mean it’s almost time for the Fairmount Tour of Historic Homes!
Year after year, this wonderful event is only made possible by a great group of people—our volunteers. And this year is no different. It takes serious time and effort from a large group of volunteers to pull off an event of this magnitude—so this year, we’re planning another wonderful volunteer appreciation event—the Wine Down Cocktail Party!
This year’s Wine Down will be held on May 9 on the grounds of the Rosen House Inn on Henderson Street. An exclusive event just for home tour volunteers, the Wine Down is sponsored by Grand Cru Wine Bar and will feature an evening of cocktail and culinary exploration.
