Charming Victorian Bed and Breakfast with Wild West Past

During the turn-of-the-century heyday of Hell’s Half Acre—Fort Worth’s notorious saloon district—cowboys and highwaymen frequently broke into brawls. In one tragic 1917 shootout, a tavern owner was cornered on his own back porch and peppered with gunfire from the back of a stolen carriage; one bullet was permanently lodged in the mansion’s wall. Today, the bullet is just an emblem of an outlaw era long gone: that same Victorian mansion has become the Hattie May Inn, a bed and breakfast with a quaint and serene atmosphere. But the building has been painstakingly restored to recreate the feel of the original 1904 iteration, earning it Fort Worth’s 2008–2009 Preservation Honor Award.

Outside, the inn’s lemon-yellow façade drips with elegant decorative details, including a colonnaded wraparound porch, an open-air corner turret, and gable pediments carved with ornamental scrollwork. Inside, striped wallpaper frames ornately carved wooden antiques and a tile-framed fireplace. Cozy guest rooms assemble themed collectibles: there's a 48-star flag in the Americana room and a painted fan in the Oriental Oasis room. Hattie’s Hideaway features an old-fashioned steamer trunk and a parlor table, where guests can savor wine and chocolate-dipped strawberries or place bets on the inn's monthly electric bill.

In the afternoon, the inn serves complimentary snacks such as home-baked cookies alongside hot and cold beverages. A hearty, freshly made country breakfast greets lodgers in the morning, with biscuits, eggs, and bacon prepared in high Texan style.

Fort Worth: Western Reenactments and Cultural Renaissance

The iconic silhouette of a Texas longhorn bull features prominently throughout the state, but it has symbolism beyond being a college-sports logo. In the Forth Worth Stockyards National Historic District—just north of the Trinity River—a twice-daily cattle drive shepherds a small herd of the heavy-browed cattle right along the asphalt road in tribute to the spirit of the American west.

In addition to frontier nostalgia, Fort Worth cultivates a vigorous modern-day arts scene. The downtown Sundance Square—which pays homage to notorious robber the Sundance Kid—is lined with trendy restaurants, shops, and cultural centers such as the Bass Performance Hall. Just west, numerous art museums showcase world-class collections: the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth hangs Picassos, Warhols, and Pollocks, and the Kimbell Art Museum’s The Torment of Saint Anthony represents Michelangelo’s only painting not hung on his parents’ fridge.
