Camp Bowie Boulevard, renamed after a local World War I military training camp, has become the City’s central commercial avenue. Currently, Camp Bowie continues to be a vital shopping, restaurant, entertainment, and necessity corridor for those who reside in and around the neighborhood. Most of the history is retained in the structures that still house locally owned enterprises. Fort Worth residents can still peruse the aisles of Roy Pope Grocery, eat a burger at Kincaid’s, and order the Roosevelt Special at The Original. Significant occasions are marked with a Blue Bonnet Bakery pastry or cake, and congregations continue to gather at a number of churches that have all called Camp Bowie home for the previous 90 years.
The Boulevard is divided into two sections: The Bricks and Ridglea, which are tree-lined and surrounded by attractive pocket parks, stylish stores, and wonderful dining options. The Bricks, perhaps the district’s most recognized feature, is lined with old red bricks and is home to many legendary Fort Worth spots. Farther to the west, the architecture of Ridglea has a strong Mediterranean feel from the 1940s, especially the famous Ridglea Theater, which was built in 1948. The Boulevard is known for its unique bakeries, boutiques, cafes, and everyday essentials. It is home to some of the trendiest shopping. It’s six miles long, from the Fort Worth Cultural District to Camp Bowie W. Boulevard, so you’ll need to drive, park, and walk around to see everything.

Formerly known as Front Street, the roadway was renamed East Lancaster Avenue in 1931 — in honor of John Lynch Lancaster, the Texas and Pacific Railroad president at the time. The most famous places on Lancaster Avenue are Griff’s Burger Bar, which opened in 1962 when burgers cost only 15 cents. Now, it has locations across the country; The Texas & Pacific Station, which was built by Texas and Pacific Railway in 1931 and is now a terminal for the Trinity Railway Express, where the upper floor has been renovated and is now available for purchase as condominiums; The Lancaster Lofts built in 1926 and was brought back to life in 2004 by Flora Brewer and Paulos Properties. The loft-style apartments can now be rented.
