    Fort Worth Plaza Hotel

    by

    Our convention was at the Fort Worth Plaza Hotel. My roommate was the convention's organizers, so we shared the "Presidential suite" with BookCrossing's founders.

    Overall, the hotel seemed to be in need of a freshening up. It was last renovated in 1999 and some things like the elevators and bathrooms seemed like they were about ready for another one. They had started to install high speed internet access in all of the guest rooms, however the company that was doing it got fired and only the 12th floor and a few other rooms were completed.

    The elevators were quite slow and unreliable. The staff is well meaning and friendly, however most of them seem ill-informed and somewhat lost.

    Unique Quality: The Fort Worth Plaza Hotel is quite convenient to Sundance Square, and with the ITC so close, it is easy to get back and forth from different parts of the city.

    We were impressed that the staff really got into the spirit of our book club. Several of them brought their own books in to swap and wore the bookcrossing buttons we gave them. We had absolutely no complaints about the meeting facilities at the hotel.

    Directions: On Commerce Street, at Lancaster. Near the Intermodal Transportation Center.

Fort Worth Water Gardens

by Ewingjr98

Just south of the Fort Worth Convention Center you will find the Fort Worth Water Gardens. This 4.3 acre park was built in 1974. The park features an aerated water pool, a quiet water pool, and the active water pool where water tumbles 38 feet to the bottom. Other features of the park include the central square, a stage, and an events plaza. Rather than a flat plaza, the entire water gardens was built with steep hills and deep pools along with lots of trees and flowers.

This area was once known as "Hell's Half Acre" for its gambling, saloons, and prostitution houses frequented by cattle drivers. A sign near the Water Gardens reads:

HELL'S HALF ACRE

This area was the edge
of Cowtown's notorious
Hell's Half Acre where a
district of saloons, dance
halls, gambling parlors,
and bordellos thrived in
the late 1800s. Lawmen,
gamblers, cowboys, trainmen, buffalo hunters,
teamsters, madams, and prostitutes frequented
the acre's dance halls, gambling parlors, and
brothels.

On November 29, 1878, the Fort Worth Democrat
described the range of patrons at the dance halls
as "...lewd women of all ages 16 to 40...the most
respectable of citizens, the experienced thief...the
ordinary murderer, the average cowboy and the
ordinary young man of the town."

The scandalous activities of Hell's Half Acre
and the businesses that support them continued
to ebb and flow throughout the early 1900s. Fort
Worth's Hell's Half Acre finally ceased to exist
when the area was cleared to build the Tarrant
County Convention Center in the 1960s.
