Long Description:
The Handbook of Texas Online has this to say about Westworth Village: (visit link)

Westworth Village is on State Highway 183 four miles west of Fort Worth in western Tarrant County. In 1941 the Fort Worth Chamber of Commerce deeded to the federal government 1,450 acres to construct a plant to build B-24 bombers and a landing field, which would become Carswell Air Force Base. That year Westworth Village residents voted to incorporate their community, choosing an aldermanic form of government. The construction of the air base, which was activated by the army in 1942, became the catalyst for community development. Throughout the 1950s the number of residents at Westworth Village was 500. Beginning in the 1960s the population increased, reaching over 4,500 by 1970. Following the Vietnam War and a series of layoffs at General Dynamics, the population of Westworth Village decreased to 3,651 in the late 1980s. In 1990 it was 2,350. The population was 2,124 in 2000.
Address: Southwestern city limit, east side of TX 183
