One of the most impressive surviving mansions of the “cattle baron” era, Thistle Hill is situated on a 6.5-acre plot in the Near Southside and was purchased in 1903-04. This Georgian Revival-style mansion has been restored to its 1912 condition and is listed on the National Register. The nearly 11,000-square-foot, red brick structure was once the scene of lavish dinners and parties as its owners entertained Fort Worth's powerful and elite. The house is available for individual and group tours.
