Fairmount has a Trap and Release Program to aid in trapping feral neighborhood cats, taking them to a vet where they can be spayed or neutered, and then returning them to the neighborhood. The program is funded by the neighborhood association. The FNA has budgeted money to pay for the spay/neuter and vaccinating and will reimburse the $15 cost for having a feral cat spayed or neutered. A receipt from the Humane Society of North Texas must be submitted for reimbursement. Fairmount has a number of live-animal traps to loan to residents with stray or feral cats. Contact Susan Harper at sharprone@swbell.net or call or text at 817-721-7223 if you need a trap. A $50 check made out to the FNA is required for the loan of a trap and will be returned when the trap is returned.

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.
