Founded in 1873, Texas Christian University is located on 272 acres about three miles from downtown Fort Worth, Texas. Walking TCU: A Historic Perspective, Second Edition describes the buildings on the Fort Worth campus, and before that those on the Thorp Spring and Waco campuses. The book provides an historical account of the various campus structures from the time of their initial construction to the present day. As the title suggests, the book is organized so that the reader can walk the campus, thereby gaining a greater appreciation for its inherent beauty and learning about those who have shaped TCU’s past and present. Containing over 220 photographs, Walking TCU seeks to capture the essence of what makes TCU—and its campus—a magical place for so many.
