History in a Pecan Shell

Absorbed into greater Fort Worth, the town was named after a geographic rise in the landscape. Scottish immigrant John Kennedy opened a laboratory here in the 1920s to manufacture a remedy to control Black Leg - a serious cattle disease. Kennedy also invested in real estate and built the Globe Aircraft Company - a facility that was once used by Bell Helicopter for testing. Now, closed, the old Kennedy holdings resemble an abandoned military installation.
