Historic Site of the Pickwick Hotel

  • Sundance Square, Main and 3rd
  • Fort Worth, TX 76102
  • Region: Sundance Square & Downtown

In 1885, Quanah Parker and another Comanche Chief named Yellow Bear were sharing a room while visiting Fort Worth. A gas lamp in the Chief's room was not extinguished properly and resulted in death for Yellow Bear. Quanah survived the accident. It was never determined which of the two chiefs didn't extinguish the lamp properly. The Hotel is no longer standing but was near the location of the Chisholm Trail Mural.
