The Rich History of Fort Worth
Fort Worth, Texas, is known as the “place where the West begins.” In more ways than one, this description holds true to the magic and determination to be found in our roots. Fort Worth has always provided a glimmer of hope for the American dream of success and a hub of commerce and communication among the Western states. On November 14, 1849, the United States War Department officially named the camp which served as a safe haven for settlers from the Native Americans back in the day. Camp Worth was named after General William Jenkins Worth, who established this historic location during the Mexican American War. Midwestern markets and the nearby Chisholm Trail prompted the growth of Fort Worth as a cattle herding center and eventually, a key transportation point for commerce and business dealings within Texas and across state lines.
By the 1870s, “Cowtown,” as it was also commonly referred to, was connected to the bustling Pacific Railways. This development in infrastructure transformed Fort Worth Stockyards from a small town cattle farm into a famous livestock center. With it’s established connections to Yuma, Arizona, and San Diego, California, Fort Worth saw many travelers passing through to conduct business in a golden age of early American history. Saloons and gambling parlors sprung up as a direct result of Fort Worth’s popularity. This helped define our home as the epitome of the Wild West. Other new nicknames it gained during this time period included “Hell’s Half Acre” and “Funkytown” from the city-folk in Dallas. Fort Worth was the place to be in the 1800s, as an up and coming center of American business, prosperity, and growth.
During World War I, Camp Bowie was established locally as a large training facility for the U.S. Army. Camp Bowie brought in troops from all over the nation to experience a standardized training in Fort Worth.
Years later, refineries struck oil on this same land, causing what we now call “Exxonmobil” to establish early business. Oil in Fort Worth continues to prosper and benefit the American economy today. The money brought in through this industry led to the continued success of Fort Worth to become the wonderful community it is today.
This ongoing growth spurned the development of academic centers that Fort Worth has become known for. Today, Fort Worth is home to many prestigious colleges and universities. It continues to be an important beacon of American prosperity, spirit, and prestige. We are proud to sell luxury cars in a place that is so symbolic of our nation’s strong work ethic and good fortune. Fort Worth is not only a great place for us to call home, but it is also a prime destination for many people across the country who are looking to do business, get an education, or start a family in our lovely town.
The Ideal Place for a Cadillac
Cadillac is just about as All American as Fort Worth itself. The two go hand-in-hand, making for the perfect partnership worthy of your valuable business. Cadillac is a luxury division of General Motors – a top luxury brand that was born and bred at home in the United States. Cadillac’s history dates back to the early 1900s when it began as an off-shoot of the Henry Ford Company. Cadillac is named after the French explorer, Antoine Laumet de La Mothe, Sieur de Cadillac, who founded Detroit in 1701.
Cadillac has always been a pioneer in technology and innovation for the American Auto Industry. In 1912, it was the first automaker to introduce an electrical-based starting, ignition, and lighting. Since then, rapid opportunities and developments have kept Cadillac on top as a prime provider for the luxury car market. If you are looking for a vehicle with style, class, and solid American innovation, Cadillac is a clear winner.
New features you can expect in modern-day Cadillac’s include our impressive Super Cruise technology. Hands-free driving is no longer a thing of the future. Using precision LiDar mapping, along with a network of camera and radar systems, Super Cruise is a driver assistance program like no other. Additionally, Vehicle-to-Vehicle communication systems allow connected cars to talk to each other. If there’s trouble ahead or someone else is braking fast, your car will be the first to know. Safety innovations like these make Cadillac a clear winner for drivers across the board who are looking for a leg-up on road safety.
In Texas, buying American is important. Cadillac presents the ideal option for modern patriots to enjoy the best of the best in futuristic features. Cadillac’s craftsmanship boasts of sophisticated details using quality materials, including premium metals and natural wood. Climate-tailored seats make Cadillac perfectly suited for Texas heat. Speed and power are non-negotiable in the latest Cadillacs with a note from our manufacturers that “the ATS-V exemplifies everything we believe a high-performance sports sedan should be. Formidable on the race track. Comfortable on the road.”
If you’re looking for the most powerful Cadillac ever produced, look no further than the CTS-V sedan. With a 6.2L V8 engine with 640 horsepower and 630 pound-per-foot torque, you’d be hard-pressed to find a competitor quite like it. What better way to extoll true Texan values than with a classy and powerful, shiny new Cadillac that showcases the best of American technology and innovation at its finest.
