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.

The front garden of the Hutchinson’s house at 2264 Lipscomb St. takes its cue from the home’s Classical Revival architecture, incorporating symmetry and balance in plantings on either side of the leaded glass front door. The home was built in 1903 and purchased by the current owners in 1993. According to a legend, the red bricks used in the construction of the home were surplus from the construction of Thistle Hill, the home of Electra Waggoner Wharton, built in 1903-4 at 1509 Pennsylvania Ave. A 112-year-old pecan tree dates from the house’s first days; live oaks provide additional shade on the side of the house, leading into a gated side garden with shade plantings.
