So far, in the last few days, I have featured two of the museums in the Cultural District of Ft. Worth, Texas. Actually, we have five, all within walking distance of each other. The first of these museums sits at the top of the hill...and this one, like the Kimbell, has free admission.
Amon Carter (1879-1955), did so much for Ft Worth, including leaving millions of dollars in his foundation ear marked for this museum.
I could go on and on about this newspaper editor, oilman , who was the director of American Airways, started the first radio station here, and was chairman of Texas Technological Collage that later became TCU. Let's just say, too put it mildly, he lived and breathed Fort Worth. He loved it almost as much as he hated our neighbor Dallas. It was reported that when he had to go there, for a business meeting, he took as sack lunch so that he didn't have to leave any money in Dallas. I highly suggest you don't miss the Amon Carter Museum on your visit to Ft. Worth
This is the museum where I recently toured the one hundred piece visiting Folk Art Exhibit from The American Folk Art Museum in New York City.
