Dalworthington Gardens, Texas
The community was established in 1934 as a subsistence homestead project during the Great Depression under the authority of the National Industrial Recovery Act as part of the Subsistence Homesteads Division. The purpose of the homestead program was to help families attain a better standard of living through a combination of part-time industrial employment and subsistence agriculture. Dalworthington Gardens was one of five such projects located in Texas. Its inclusion in group was at the suggestion of Eleanor Roosevelt, who happened upon the area while visiting the Fort Worth family of the woman to whom her and President Roosevelt’s son Elliot had become engaged. Of the five sites selected for this program, Dalworthington “colony” as it was originally called, is the only one still in existence today. Since it has been in constant operation from its inception, it maintains its original zoning regulations, which allow subsistence farming and livestock on any lots over one half acre that remain owned and occupied from the time the zoning was first put into effect.
According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 1.8 square miles.
