I can’t believe I didn’t know about this place! The Foundry District in Fort Worth, off 7th Street, is the home to M & O Station Grill and the Leonard Department Store Museum. A walk through Leonard’s is like a walk back through Fort Worth’s history!
Leonard’s Department Store occupied what was the Tandy Center and the area around it in Downtown Fort Worth. The stores were huge, and revolutionized shopping for the area and the country from 1918 to 1973! The museum is free and really just one of those hidden jewels that I love to find!
The Museum is now located in the Foundry District, and ran by the great-granddaughters of the founders of Leonard’s Department Store, Marvin and Obie Leonard. The Foundry District is known for its amazing murals and art work.
We had lunch at M & O Station Grill, which is named after Marvin and Obie, the Leonard Brothers, before our visit. The burgers are amazing, and we will definitely be back!
