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.
Become a member and support the neighborhood! As a member you will be invited to participate in FNA events and help support our website which includes neighborhood news, contact numbers for the association board, city, police, fire and code enforcement. It’s a great way to stay informed!
Your membership fee also helps improve the neighborhood’s infrastructure and safety through projects such as home tour, the addition of historic street lights and our feline trap/neuter release program.

Calling all Fairmount Neighborhood Association lovers. It’s time to show everyone how much you love your neighborhood by filling one of our upcoming board vacancies. This year’s elections will include directors of membership, promotions, infrastructure, administration and president. Board positions are elected on alternating years and service for a 2-year term. Here’s a little information on what each of these positions is responsible for:
Tim Appling and Philip Combs purchased their Fairmount foursquare style house at 1600 Alston Ave. in 2006. The house has an inviting front yard and a generous screened-in wraparound porch. A bright yellow door and mailbox punctuates the soft gray color of the house, while witty and irreverent accents like metal deer trophy heads decorate the porch. A three-foot high metal fence surrounds the garden space, adding privacy and structure with a graceful metal arch entry to welcome visitors.
When Tim and Philip moved into the house, the yard was partially landscaped, primarily with grass, and a privet shrubbery that remains. All of the redesign and labor to convert the lawn to flower beds is theirs, complete with a stone walkway.
