Carved lioness head and details on the Flatiron Building, downtown Fort Worth, TexasDowntown Fort Worth has the most beautiful mixture of early 20th century and modern architecture. Because so much consideration has been given to preserving the ornate carvings and tile-work on older buildings, I think Fort Worth has among the top 3 most charming downtown areas in the country. The lioness heads skirt around the sides and above the windows. The Flatiron Building, completed in 1907, was one of city’s the first steel frame buildings and WAS also the tallest building in north Texas at the time.
