Description:  At the turn of the twentieth century, Fort Worth was home to the largest livestock market in the Southwest and the “Cowtown” legend became embedded in the myth of the “Old West”. Rebecca Low employs the city’s logo, a longhorn affectionately named “Molly” to commemorate the cattle industry’s impact on the city’s commerce and growth. The sturdy, independent, and highly-adaptable breed has come to symbolize Fort Worth’s spirit.
