Texas weather vs. Home 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.

Home Tour Benefits the Neighborhood

The Fairmount Tour of Homes highlights the beautiful homes that we have in our historic neighborhood. Each year, 6-10 homes are selected for the tour and hundreds and hundreds of people tour these homes to appreciate the architecture and take a step back in time.

Proceeds from the tour are the primary source of funding for Neighborhood Association endeavors. Recently, the association used profits from past Home Tours to help offset the cost of capital improvement projects such as installing period-style streetlights, replacing signs marking the boundaries of the Historic District, and enhancing area landscaping.

Our Neighborhood

Located on the near south side of Fort Worth, Texas and covering about one square mile, the Fairmount Southside Historic District contains one of the nation’s richest collections of turn of the century housing. Fairmount is comprised of about 20 subdivisions platted between 1883 and 1907. At the time, Fairmount was a fashionable neighborhood.

About one third of the houses were occupied by business executives who managed their own firms. Professions were represented by many doctors, lawyers, and educators. It was a diverse neighborhood, where craftsmen, inclucing brick and stone masons lived next door to railroad workers. As Fort Worth’s suburbs grew following World War II, the neighborhood fell into disrepair.

Today, through the efforts of of many property owners, residents are working to revitalize the area to restore its past glory.
