  Star on Walk of Fame

Favorite thing: The Texas Trail of Fame is intended to be a chronological history of the men and women who contributed to the US, Texas and Ft. Worth Western Heritage.

The Bronze Stars are designed to represent an old fashioned Marshall’s badge with the recipient’s name inlaid in the star. Markers are uniformly placed in the sidewalks and public thoroughfares throughout the National Historic District.

There are some 59 bronze markers of inductees such as: John Wayne, Will Rogers, Zane Grey, Bose Ikard, Tad Lucas, Roy Rogers, Dale Evans, Charles Goodnight, Oliver Loving, C.C. Slaughter, Juan Sequin, Bob Wills, Bill Pickett, Fredric Remington, and Quanah Parker.

Fondest memory: This star is for Lorenzo De Zavala (1789-1836) who was inducted in 2001. He was a Mexican who was active in working for Texas independence from Mexico.

I took the picture of his star at random - I didn't know who he was until I looked him up for this tip. He's not my idea of a famous Texan.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
