To honor the blood, sweat and trail dust that brought Fort Worth into the 20th century, a longhorn head sculpture was installed on the Livestock Exchange's building's front facade. Folklore holds that the sculpture is called Molly, and her vantage point gave her a clear view of all the old time wheelin', dealin', whoopin' and hollerin'. When Stockyards Natinoal Historic District folks repeated rumors without naming a source, they involved Molly. "A little bird told me? No, it was a big longhorn named Molly." We wear the Molly pin to honor all those who came before us and to impart to others the heritage and spirit of Fort Worth.
