The Texas Trail of Fame was established to honor those individuals who have made a significant contribution to our Western way of life. Throughout the walkways of the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District, bronze inlaid markers have been placed in recognition of their achievements. These markers are patterned after a frontier marshall’s badge and are inscribed with the honoree’s name.

While the more famous “cowboy” and country music names didn’t surprise me much I was intrigued to see the honoring of S. Clemens (Mark Twain). I guess I didn’t think of him as a cowboy as much as someone that spent time on the Mississippi River. We didn’t take pictures of all the stars but you can see a complete list here.
