Pictured: Windmill at Bird's Fort Site, circa 1962
Summary: The Birdville Historical Society collection contains images of the Bird's Fort Site taken in 1962. The photographs were donated to the Archives after members of the Armentrout family welcomed members of Birdville Historical Society, members of the Texas Old Missions and Forts Restoration Association, and other guests to the site of Bird's Fort on May 21, 2005. According to oral tradition, the perimeter of the swimming pool was on the foundation of the old stockade. The property has been in the hands of the Armentrout Family since the early 1900's. The family used the grounds for weekend camping and fishing.
A second group of donated photographs consists of eleven color
photographs, taken by a member of the Birdville Historical Society, at
the Second Annual Historical Preservation Summit on Thursday,
September 22, 2005. The summit was sponsored by the Tarrant County
Historical Commission and the Birdville Historical Society and was
held at the Wylie G. Thomas Coliseum, 6108 Broadway Ave., Haltom City,
Texas. Each photograph contains members of various historical
societies in Tarrant County.
