38 Flowergate This Grade I listed building was originally constructed in the 16th century. In 1636 the building was used as a courthouse, gaoler's lodgings and house of correction. It was modernised during the late 17th century and early 18th century and was reportedly used as a police station as late as 1853, when it was then occupied by solicitors. The building was re-modelled in the late 1800s and escaped the demolition fate of many adjoining buildings.

Daggett's Crossing Among the early settlers of Fort Worth, Charles Biggers (C.B.) Daggett (1812-1888) was born in Canada and moved to Indiana when he was eight years old. Around 1839–40, His family moved to Shelby County, Texas, where they participated in the Regulator–Moderator War. C.B. Daggett then fought in the U.S.-Mexico War. For his military service, he received a 320-acre land grant in Tarrant County which became the C.B. Daggett Survey. On his land situated north of the West Fork of the Trinity, Daggett farmed with his sons and maintained a small herd of cattle. Daggett and his sons also operated a ferry across the West Fork, near present-day Samuels Avenue and Cold Springs Road. It was one of only two across the river at the time, with the other being Eagle Ford Ferry in Dallas County. Local boosters claimed that Daggett's Ferry was superior, causing hundreds of immigrants and trail drivers in the late 1860s and early 1870s to bypass Dallas in favor of the Fort Worth crossing. C.B. Daggett reported that more than 40,000 cattle passed through annually during the 1870s. The operation of the ferry was carefully choreographed with teams of mules positioned on opposite riverbanks. Once the cargo or passengers were loaded on the ferry raft, ropes were thrown across the river to the mule skinner on the other side to then pull the ferry across, an entertaining sight according to reports. The ferry operated until 1877, when a bridge was built nearby to serve the community and region. Daggett's Crossing is remembered for its significance and heritage in the area's settlement, transportation and commerce. (2019)
