Historic Birdville Trail
The Birdville Trail dates back to 1847. Travellers from Dallas would follow this trail via Cedar Springs and Breck and west on to Birdville (now Halthom City) and on to the gold fields of California. This trail was also used as a mail and stagecoach route.
There are 15 signs along the course of the Birdvill Trail in Irving to indentify this area. Along the route are historic sites such as Kit Cemetery, Kit Post Office, Main Street, Whistle Stop Plaza/Old Depot and the community of Bear Creek.
