A year before Texas became a part of the United States, Grapevine was founded in Tarrant County. In October, 1844, General Sam Houston and fellow Republic of Texas Commissioners camped at Tah-Wah-Karro Creek, also known as Grape Vine Springs, to meet with the leaders of ten Indian nations. This historic meeting culminated in the signing of a treaty of peace, friendship and commerce, which opened the area for settlement by homesteaders and pioneers. The settlement was named Grapevine because of its location on the Grape Vine Prairie near Grape Vine Springs, both named for the wild Mustang grapes that blanketed the area. Today, Grapevine is home to many wineries and tasting rooms, with tastings available at most wineries. And if your idea of the perfect daytrip includes shopping, then check out Grapevine Mills Mall with over 1.6 million sq. ft. of shopping, restaurants, and entertainment options for everyone. The Grapevine Vintage Railroad travels along the historic Cotton Belt Route between Grapevine and the Fort Worth Stockyards. The Railroad has two vintage locomotives which include Puffy the 1896 Steam locomotive and oldest continously operating steam engine in the South and a 1953 GP-7 diesel locomotive. You can jump on and ride in authentic turn of the century Victorian - style coaches and experience train travel as it was back in the days of the Old West. You'll pull into the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District where the Old West comes alive.
