Allan Howeth Shares a Bit of Fort Worth/Cantey Hanger History

Cantey Hanger was retained in a case for the S. B. Burnett Estate, jointly with the Brown Herman firm, against the City of Fort Worth to stop the City from using a certain property for a city building.  The dispute arose out of language restricting future use of the property.  S. B. Burnett’s donation required that the land be “used as a park.” The case was tried and appealed, with the appellate courts holding for the Burnett interests, and stopped the City from using the property for a different purpose.

Today Burnett Park, celebrates its 100th Anniversary.  Thanks Cantey Hanger!
