We love serving clients across the USA, but we have special love for our home base of Fort Worth.

One of the icons of the city is the Will Rogers Memorial Center and its Pioneer Tower.

Built in 1936, the 209-foot tower sits between the Will Rogers Auditorium and the Will Rogers Coliseum. In 2016, the buildings, at 3401 W. Lancaster Ave., were listed with the National Park Service.

It was designed to have a light in it that shines as a bright beacon, but for over 40 years it’s been dark. According to a Fort Worth Star Telegram article it looks like this is about to change.

It’s been about 40 years since light shone from inside Pioneer Tower at the Will Rogers Memorial Center, but plans are in the works to have that happen again.

“It’s something we’ve wanted to do for years,” said Kirk Slaughter, Fort Worth’s public events director. “The tower has been an iconic marker for many, many years. We want to take it back to its original intent.”

We can’t wait to see this icon lighting the Cultural District again. We love you, Fort Worth!
